Essential & Strategically Well Positioned

  • Infrastructure is basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society or enterprise, or the services and facilities necessary for an economy to function. It can be generally defined as the set of interconnected structural elements that provide the framework that supports an entire structure of development. The term typically refers to the technical structures that support a society, such as roads, bridges, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, and so forth, and can be defined as "the physical components of interrelated systems providing commodities and services essential to enable, sustain, or enhance societal living conditions."
  • Many other industries reply on infrastructure to survive and flourish:
    • Infrastructure sector can broadly be divided into four areas, and most funds focus on first three: patronage-related, regulated & social assets;
    • Other areas of core infrastructure exist outside of or straddling these categories.


Characteristics of Infrastructure


Stable Long-Term Predictable Returns

  • Stable cash flows with high degree of predictability, low volatility and attractive yields;
  • Most have sustainable competitive advantage due to monopolistic nature;
  • Long term sustainable income ideal for pension funds who try to ¡°match¡± their own liabilities;
  • Risk profile and re-rating opportunities, resulting in capital gains;
  • Opportunity to enhance income through active management of assets (e.g. operational improvements, refinancing and consolidation synergies);
  • Defensive investment to hedge against recessions and inflation;
  • Diversification of existing portfolio;
  • Optimal position on the risk vs. return curve compared to other investment classes.


Sub-sectors and Relative Risk Profile

  • Resilience of asset class - provides diversification benefits - diminishes with increasing exposure to demand and competitive risks;
  • Availability and regulatory type assets are the most resilient.
