Global infrastructure investing

As global infrastructure investing grows, access the trusted data, intelligence and content needed to bridge the investment gap.

Our global infrastructure solutions

Over the past two decades, institutional and private investment in public infrastructure has steadily increased. The long term and diversified nature of infrastructure projects, and the strong return profile, has seen the asset class gain interest from the fund management and pension fund industry.

However, data transparency remains a key obstacle to growth in private sector funding. The world currently faces a $15 trillion infrastructure investment gap by 2040. To activate private investment the sector needs standardized, trusted and transparent data to assess performance, returns and risk.

Refinitiv has the most comprehensive set of news, data, insights and analytics available on global infrastructure developments from rumor to close, including deal structuring, financing, risk profiling, regulatory compliance and lender, investor and advisor profiles.

Spotlight project: Etihad Rail is the first national freight and passenger railway network connecting the seven emirates of the UAE. According to Infrastructure 360 data, the project - which promises to ‘act as a catalyst for economic growth and sustained social development’ -  has already cost more than US $5bn.

Sustainable finance

From Governments, state owned institutions, investors and capital facilitators (e.g. Sovereign Wealth Funds, pension funds, wealth managers etc.) and corporations; multiple entities are undertaking greater stakes in the ‘infrastructure as an asset class’ domain to sustain return on capital employed and to deliver growth.
