The infrastructure asset class has seen growing attention from institutional investors, fund managers, developers and concessionaires and their lenders due to its stable, long term and generally inflationary-linked returns. In order to maintain these returns and achieve this stability, the risks of the infrastructure investments need careful analysis and structuring, particularly around technical issues that span both the operating and asset management phases of infrastructure ownership.
