mallowstreet University Dinner – Investing in infrastructure: The benefits and challenges UK pension scheme trustees should be thinking about
Infrastructure investing remains a popular topic with UK pension scheme trustees as significant institutional inflows continue. Infrastructure investments represent a potentially sound place for assets in a low-interest-rate environment. The asset class can provide predictable cash flows and stable returns with a low correlation to equity and fixed-income markets. In addition, we believe the direct link with inflation and the resulting hedging of pension liabilities make the strategy even more appealing to UK trustees. But what’s the catch? In this University Dinner, GCM Grosvenor will explore the benefits and challenges of accessing and investing in the unlisted infrastructure asset class, and the considerations UK trustees should be thinking about in today’s market.
