Infrastructures provide us with essential services to be able to go about our day-to-day lives. We flick a switch and we have light; we move using motorways, bridges and railways; we talk on the phone thanks to repeaters; we warm up when it's cold... Essential assets in any society.
Why invest in this trend?
These companies supply our daily consumption.Companies that own or operate water, gas or electricity supply facilities, but also others equally necessary and in continuous development, such as those dedicated to transport or telecommunications infrastructure.
A trend that provides reliable and growing revenue.As well as diversification between the different infrastructure sub-industries and in the different political and regulatory regimes that offer different risk exposures.
Greater protection against inflation.Thanks to long-term regulated contracts, infrastructure companies can modify the price according to the evolution of inflation and pass it on to the end customer.
In an uncertain macroeconomic environment, infrastructure and public services represent a solid option for long-term investment.
The reopening of the economies and the return to normality after the pandemic support the new growth cycle of infrastructures, especially those that will play a key role in the process of electrifying installations.

According to figures from the International Energy Agency, annual investment in the energy sector is expected to rise from 760 billion dollars in 2019 to 2.5 trillion in 2030. Almost triple!

- And more than a third will be allocated to the expansion, modernisation and digitisation of electricity grids.
