What makes an infrastructure?

Under the TICCS® framework, a number of fundamental economic criteria have to be present for a company and its assets to be meaningfully considered 'infrastructure':

  • Single-use investment (no alternative use)
  • Sunk or irreversible capital investment
  • Large size & long repayment period
  • Inflexible total cost structure
  • Infrastructure as a service (value through service provision)
  • Not a store of value (it's valuable because it's useful)

TICCS® is the industry standard for infrastructure investment classification and benchmarking
