Recovering infrastructure sector ripe for investment

The infrastructure market was relatively resilient in 2020 and even sectors such as transportation infrastructure are starting to rebound in 2021, according to Tania Tsoneva, senior director, global infrastructure research, CBRE Investment Management.

“A lot of tailwinds are coming up,” she added. “The Fit for 55 initiative in Europe and $1 billion infrastructure bill in the US bode well for infrastructure investment for the next five to ten years,” she said.

Although the transportation infrastructure market was the most severely impacted last year it too is starting to recover and pockets have anyway been relatively resilient.

Talking to Real Asset Insight’s Richard Betts she said infrastructure, “is definitely one of the obvious asset classes to invest in because it has inflation protection.”

“We’re going to see a lot more need and use of infrastructure so longer term demographics are also supportive in terms of investment flows.”
