Kurzbeschreibung

The market for infrastructure is vast and, contrary to popularbelief, the range of potential infrastructure investments isextremely broad. An investor who does not have a sufficientoverview and insight into the infrastructure market or an awarenessof the suitable investment opportunities and the risks they entail,will find it difficult to select the right investments.
This book is a comprehensive guide to the subject, bringingtogether the topics of infrastructure investments, project financeand public private partnerships (PPPs), equipping investors withthe necessary theoretical knowledge and background information aswell as practical examples in order to further their understandingof the key aspects of infrastructure investments.
It answers questions such as: How is infrastructure defined?Which sectors are classified as infrastructure, how are theycategorised, and what are the differences between them? Isinfrastructure an asset class in its own right? If so, what are itscharacteristics? What are the fundamental options for investing ininfrastructure? What is a good starting point for institutionalinvestors? How should infrastructure funds be evaluated? What risksdo they entail and how can these risks be identified and assessed?How should they be structured in order to best allocate theserisks?
The book discusses the differing objectives and expectations ofthe parties involved and the conditions required by publicprincipals and investors in order to enable these groups toovercome the ?language problems? they largely encounter.
In addition to background knowledge and information on thelatest developments in the individual subject areas, the book alsoexplains the methodology of project finance in detail, both fortraditional project finance and in the PPP context, establishingthe key differences to other forms of financing, guiding readersthrough the various phases of project analysis on a step-by-stepbasis using practical examples.
Well structured infrastructure investments can serve to improvethe risk-return profile of an investor?s overall portfolio onaccount of their long term and their low level of correlation withtraditional asset classes. This book will assist investors in theirunderstanding of infrastructure investments, leading to a betterinformed portfolio.
"A comprehensive and well-written overview of many relevanttopics in the infrastructure sector; a useful guide for everyoneinvolved or interested in the infrastructure area."
Henk Huizing, Head of Infrastructure, PGGM
"A comprehensive book that effectively marries the topics ofinfrastructure investing, project finance and PPPs as well asbridges the gap between the theoretical and the practical - theauthors are to be commended on this work."
Marc S. Lipschultz, Global Head of Energy and Infrastructure,Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
"Quite a book and one that should definitely be part of thetoolkit of those who are interested in the Infrastructure assetclass. Had this comprehensive work been available ten years ago, nodoubt, one or two of us certainly would have done thingsdifferently. So, let's keep it closely at hand as a guide for thefuture that helps us deliver even better outcomes for allstakeholders and enables us to further develop the assetclass."
