In 2013, we launched our infrastructure debt platform to serve investor needs for real asset diversification and income. Investing in this asset class can offer stable performances and risk-adjusted returns, due to its low correlation to economic cycles. We provide financing structures that capitalise on the unique features of this asset class (high barriers to entry, capital intensive).
The primary sectors we target are regulated utilities and power (electricity, gas transmission and distribution, water), transport (toll roads, airports, ports, rails, tunnels) and other sectors of interest such as power generators, telecom infrastructures, public transport and healthcare facilities.

Global Infrastructure Investment
Whether it is taking the train to work, having clean drinking water, turning on the lights, surfing the internet or visiting a hospital. Infrastructure touches our lives on a daily basis.
But deteriorating infrastructure assets, rising populations, and the drive for sustainable development are driving countries’ need for substantially increased capital investment into communications networks, renewable energy, transport and other systems that support economic growth and improve the lives of their peoples.
Infrastructure is typically divided into two major categories:
Economic infrastructure: transport, utilities and power, telecoms, storage and parking) that provide essential services that typically operate under the terms of a licence or a concession agreement.
Social infrastructure: hospitals, student accommodation, public transportation etc that are typically supported by contractual arrangements with no volume risk.
