Summary
Investors considering investing in infrastructure need to form return and risk expectations to make allocation decisions. Written by Frédéric Blanc-Brude and Majid Hasan of the EDHEC-Risk Institute, PEI’s "Infrastructure Valuation" develops asset valuation methodologies and data collection templates that aim to contribute to the effective benchmarking of privately held infrastructure debt and equity.

Key benefits of the book:
  • Identifies the important dimensions of a very ill-defined and little understood topic (infrastructure investment).
  • Details the challenges faced by investors (with regards to valuation and risk measurement) and proposes a way forward.
  • Demonstrates two academically validated asset-pricing models (one for debt, one for equity) that have been developed with practical and industrial implementation in mind.
  • Explains what data should be collected in order to be able to run these models.
The publication is aimed at investors engaging or beginning to engage with the subject of infrastructure investment, including pensions funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds, and asset managers, especially those that are specialised in infrastructure investment.
