White Papers / Research from AMP Capital (Infrastructure)
The growth of private debt strategies has continued apace since the beginning of the GFC. The rapid growth of this asset class is largely a consequence of the crisis: private investors have absorbed market share hitherto provided by banks. With lending to businesses gradually increasing over the past decade, 2017 at last saw deployment and fundraising surpass pre-crisis highs.
Infrastructure implies solidity and stability. But as an investment, there are few other asset classes that can match infrastructure’s dynamism, at least in terms of growth and diversity.
In a low interest rate environment, with little sign of change at least in the short-to-medium term, finding an asset class that delivers yield and security is no easy feat.
