The language of infrastructure

by Frédéric Blanc-Brude
Pension funds and insurers discovered infrastructure investing, somewhat counter-intuitively, around the same time that they began adopting the principles of factor investing. Thus, the schizophrenic search for an infras- tructure ”asset class” started just as other asset classes were being gradually rejected as unreliable portfolio building blocks.
