2016-2019 EDHEC/LTIIA Research Chair

Supporting data collection and creating new benchmarks for infrastructure equity investors

This project follows the completion of the EDHEC/Meridiam/Campbell-Lutyens Research Chair (2013-2016). The Long-Term Infrastructure Investor Association, which was created by the original sponsors of the Chair, brings its support to the creation and population of a global infrastructure equity cash flow database.

This database is being built by the EDHEC Infrastructure Investment Institute from investor contributions and primary documentation (financial statements, project documentation etc), will cover thousands of investments globally, and will allow the production of infrastructure equity benchmarks.

Over the 2016-18 period, the Chair aims to produce three types of empirical benchmarking analyses of infrastructure equity investments:
1. Infrastructure equity benchmarks in an asset allocation context (risk/return);
2. Infrastructure equity in a liability-driven investment context;
3. Infrastructure equity returns and the ESG characteristics of infrastructure projects.

The Research Chair was officially launched at the EDHECinfra Forum in London on March 16th, 2016.

Two LTIIA members, Campbell-Lutyens and the Club of Long-Term Investors provide additional support to this project.
