Investor focused: How can we best improve our service to the investor community?

Regular readers of Institutional Investing in Infrastructure (i3), or any other IREI publication, are likely aware our company is “investor-focused.” Those of you less familiar with our publications and events might just assume this is a tagline, but the reality is everything we do is back-dropped with the question: Are we doing our best to serve the investor community, and how can we improve upon that service?


Investing in developed country private infrastructure funds: The opportunity for investors

This article discusses infrastructure from an alternative investments perspective. It outlines the rationale for investing in developed country infrastructure and describes the global market opportunity segmented by geographic regions. It also touches upon regulatory and public policy issues and their effects on the investment opportunity set. Infrastructure’s risk/return characteristics and developing trends are also presented with a view to its potential role in investment portfolios.


Second chances: Infrastructure secondary funds and transactions can link investors with long-lived assets

In many ways, today’s infrastructure investment market is similar to the market of 2005 to 2007. A lot of capital is being raised by closed-end funds, and the asset class is attracting interest from investors who are new to the market. But one aspect of today’s market that was missing 10 years ago is there are more clear paths not only to exit investments but also extend those investments in order to continue to benefit from a yielding portfolio of mature assets.


If at first you don’t succeed: The Trump administration’s infrastructure proposal fell flat, but infrastructure policy remains a priority

When a new administration takes office, they often bring change. The current administration is no different. In fact, there may even be more change with this president than with past administrations. We have already seen changes to immigration, regulation, taxes and trade. The trade tariffs on China, as well as Canada, Mexico and Europe, may have ramifications for the infrastructure space, but of bigger note is the possibility of a new infrastructure spending plan proposed by the Trump administration that would potentially change the way the United States finances infrastructure projects from here on out
