Why investing in infrastructure makes sense

Boe Pahari, head of infrastructure for Europe at AMP Capital Investors, on why investing in infrastructure makes sense. He says western Europe in particular offers relatively low risk infrastructure projects that will generate moderate returns in the high single digit and low double digit range. Investors should either look at investing in pooled funds or make sure they have the inhouse expertise to assess the relative risks of different projects. They should also be prepared to lock away their money for at least five years.
