The Monetary Authority of Singapore has granted five years of funding to EDHEC Business School Asia-Pacific to start the EDHEC Infrastructure Institute Project in Singapore. The project involves the development of the EDHECinfra database and the creation of new investment benchmarks for infrastructure investment solution design and prudential regulation calibration.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore is the central bank of Singapore. Its mission is to promote economic growth, to conduct integrated supervision of financial services, to manage the official foreign reserves and to develop Singapore as an international financial centre.

Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore: “EDHEC will create usable investment benchmarks for infrastructure investors.”

Ravi Menon, Managing Director, Monetary Authority of Singapore: “EDHEC’s infrastructure performance benchmarks will provide investors with a valuable tool to evaluate their infrastructure investments, and help to support the growth of infrastructure as a mainstream asset class.”
