Infrastructure

"Infrastructure can be thought of as a real return asset class with long investment horizons capable of matching the long-term liabilities or obligations for pension funds and other institutional investors."

Philosophy

Long term, income producing and stable.

We believe success in infrastructure investing is based on acquiring real assets that are long term, income producing and stable. We also believe that an open-ended fund structure best matches both our clients’ long-term needs and the long lifespan of infrastructure investments. We further believe that the most attractive opportunities lie in the mid-market range and are best sourced through established relationships. Finally, Greystone’s Infrastructure team believes risk is most appropriately managed through careful deal structuring as well as diversification globally and across different asset types.

Process

Our infrastructure team uses its extensive global network to source high-quality infrastructure assets and partners. Extensive due diligence, including in-depth financial analysis and scenario testing, enables the team to assess whether a particular opportunity is worthy of investment. Thorough risk assessment and careful deal structuring ensure our clients’ interests are protected. The team remains intimately involved with each asset in the portfolio, through a rigorous asset management process targeting shareholder rights and/or board representation, in order to protect, grow and build the resulting income stream.
