Private Infrastructure: Building blocks for customizing portfolio risk and return
Private Infrastructure: Building blocks for customizing portfolio risk and return

Private infrastructure investments offer institutions greater flexibility in customizing portfolios to achieve a desired risk-return profile. Compared to public  securities, benefits include the potential for higher yields and long-term growth, with lower risk than implied by the liquidity premium. Strong governance provisions reduce the risk of less diversified and relatively illiquid private investments, and offer a level of control not available with public securities.

 


Infrastructure Debt: Pipeline to yield, diversification and lower risk

Infrastructure Debt: Pipeline to yield, diversification and lower risk

Institutional investors understand that infrastructure is a distinct asset class offering powerful diversification benefits. But they often overlook the primary source of funding for U.S. public infrastructure—municipal bonds. These public debt securities historically have offered attractive yields, high credit quality, and very low default rates, compared to similarly-rated corporate bonds. Muni bonds’ particular risk-return profile can serve as a diversifying complement to corporate bonds and sovereign debt, with potential to increase portfolio risk-adjusted returns.
