- Which geographic markets are attracting the most interest from financial investors in infrastructure?
- Why are they creating a buzz?
- Is the hype justified? Key considerations and challenges for investors.
- Which are the emerging markets to watch?
A tour of global hotspots
This Hot Markets article, published in Infrastructure Investor magazine (April 2015), explores all these questions and more, with specialist commentary from leaders in the global infrastructure M&A team on:
- Australia: Asset recycling has helped Australia become a global focus for investors, but in the midst of political uncertainty, how long will this last?
- Asia: Financial investment into the region will be a slow burn as tentative steps are taken towards developing PPP markets, and as investors in Australia begin looking at neighbouring opportunities.
- MENA: Governments have been cautious about private sector involvement in infrastructure, but the assumption that they can provide all the required funding is now being challenged.
- UK: Still the first port of call for investors examining opportunities in Europe, but can supply meet demand?
- Nordics: The only European region close to rivalling the UK, with lots of current deal activity and investors scouring the terrain, but how much is left?
- Germany: After a series of utilities and renewable energy deals a few years ago, regulation and taxation can now be very challenging and yield is hard to find.
- Poland: A market to watch?
- Spain: Here we go again.
