Why invest in Private Infrastructure today?

Infrastructure is everywhere.
When we use digital tools, a datacentre is required. When we travel, we use roads, railways or airports. And finally, when we recharge our mobile phone, we use electricity, which is provided by a power plant.

3 megatrends drive demand for infrastructure, known as the 3 Ds:
Digitalisation, Decarbonisation, Deglobalisation

Infrastructure, an essential service to the community, was previously provided by governments and public-sector organisations. However, owing to the capital expenditure required by these massive investments coupled with high levels of government debt, private investments have become essential. This results in amazing opportunities for private capital investments. 

By 2030, Europe will suffer a 5 trillion-dollar gap in infrastructure:
