Alternative assets valuation and valuation oversight: infrastructure

The infrastructure sector sits at a collision point of global disruptions, including shifts in capital availability, evolving social and environmental priorities, and rapid urbanisation. Additionally, it has been proved that some profile of infrastructures (green energy or utilities transportation) present more financial and operational resilience than general investments during uncertainty periods like the COVID-19, increasing the appealing for this profile of investments among institutional investors who use them as a potential source of risk diversification.

The pressing global need for substantial infrastructure is widely recognised. The challenge is not just to fund the massive investment required and target it at the right infrastructure projects. It is also necessary to provide the required infrastructure on an affordable, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable basis.

Therefore, there is an emerging need of developing knowledge and critical thinking within the investors community in order to narrow the gap between funding availability and the market opportunities in the infrastructure sub-sectors.
