Sustainable infrastructure-A paradigm shift for private equity

The future of infrastructure presents new opportunities for private capital to achieve greater returns with a focus on investing in infrastructure as a system with sustainability and technology at its centre.

Infrastructure is a societal necessity. Infrastructure investments are traditionally chosen for their stable returns and ability to withstand economic pressures. Recent changes in both government policies and market demands have shifted the investment landscape and increased opportunities for greater returns. The energy transition, the rise of big data and the ageing of existing infrastructure are all drivers of the shift in infrastructure investment decisions.

With public funding expected to fall short of requirements to maintain existing infrastructure, private equity funds are acting as a catalyst to necessary investment. Recent trends include investments in data centres, renewable energy development and logistics-related fleets and operations.

This report outlines the evolving global infrastructure landscape, recent trends for private equity in infrastructure and an outlook for investments in decarbonisation and digitisation.
