Q2 2015 Update: Investor activity in infrastructure

RELATED TOPICS​

This article investigates the future plans of institutional investors in infrastructure, featuring the latest data from the Preqin Quarterly Update: Infrastructure, Q2 2015.

When investing in the infrastructure space, the majority of investors will target domestic opportunities in the next year (Fig 1). However, a large proportion of investors also seek geographical diversification when making investments, particularly North America-based institutions, with 57 per cent of these investors targeting global opportunities in the next 12 months.

As the infrastructure asset class matures and investors become more sophisticated, many establish separate infrastructure allocations, as opposed to targeting the asset class through other allocations such as private equity or real asset buckets; 38 per cent invest through a separate infrastructure allocation (Fig 2).

When looking at the amount of capital and the number of funds investors plan to invest in in the year ahead, Fig 3 and Fig 4 respectively reveal that while 61 per cent of investors plan to invest less than $100 million, 74 per cent plan to invest in multiple vehicles.

Preqin releases quarterly reports covering private equity, hedge funds, infrastructure, real estate and private debt. All five quarterly updates can be accessed for free in our Research Center.
