Investing in the Infrastructure Supercycle

Infrastructure is the backbone of the global economy. Utilities bring power and water to our homes; ports and ships move our goods; cell towers keep us connected; and hydro plants power our daily lives. Those are just a few of the many ways that infrastructure is crucial to how society functions.


As global megatrends like digitalization, decarbonization and deglobalization gain momentum, infrastructure is playing a key role in reshaping the future and generating attractive opportunities for a wide range of investors.

The Potential Benefits of Investing in Infrastructure

Infrastructure assets can offer a compelling combination of diversification, downside mitigation, inflation mitigation, income and long duration. That’s why we believe that infrastructure is one of the few asset classes positioned to address near-term factors—such as elevated inflation and interest rate volatility—while offering compelling long-term return potential amid the supercycle underway.

Risk/Return

Adding private infrastructure to a portfolio has historically increased overall return while decreasing risk.

There are limitations to the data provided given limited coverage, reporting lag and different valuation methodologies. Further, private infrastructure funds that are included in the index choose to self-report. Thus, the index is not representative of the entire private infrastructure universe and may be skewed towards those funds that generally have higher performance. Over time, funds included and excluded based on performance, may result a “survivorship bias” that can result in a further misrepresentation of performance.

The Burgiss Infrastructure Index represents a horizon calculation based on data compiled from infrastructure funds, including fully liquidated partnerships. There are limitations to the Burgiss data provided given limited coverage, reporting lag and different valuation methodologies. Further, private infrastructure funds that are included in the index choose to self-report. Thus, the index is not representative of the entire private infrastructure universe and may be skewed towards those funds that generally have higher performance. Over time, funds included and excluded based on performance, may result a "survivorship bias" that can result in a further misrepresentation of performance.
 

Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change in prices over time in a fixed market basket of goods and services.

Investment Terms
Standard deviation is a commonly-used measure of the risk/reward profile of the risk/reward profile of traditional portfolios and broad market indices. As applied to alternative investment funds and strategies, however, these statistics may materially understate the true risk profile of an alternative investment because alternative investment funds are subject to a loss of principal which is not reflected in the standard deviation of returns, the only measure of risk used in calculating standard deviation
 

General
All investing involves risk. The value of an investment will fluctuate over time, and an investor may gain or lose money, or the entire investment. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 
 

Infrastructure companies may be subject to a variety of factors that may adversely affect their business, including high interest costs, high leverage, regulation costs, economic slowdown, surplus capacity, increased competition, lack of fuel availability, and energy conservation policies.
