Investor insights about infrastructure growth

A global study, launched by GI Hub and EDHEC Infrastructure Institute, reveals investor preferences that can unlock record levels of private capital for infrastructure.

The study, which looked to identify investor expectations for the sector, found that investors have an increasing appetite for infrastructure including in emerging markets, with the number of investors looking for exposure to emerging markets set to more than double over the next 3-5 years. The study finds that investors are increasingly comfortable with long investment periods and less concerned about the lack of liquidity associated with infrastructure projects, with 81 per cent of respondents now expecting to keep investments for at least 10 years. However, the study pinpoints rising concerns about a shortage of bankable infrastructure opportunities.
