As central banks grapple with runaway inflation and broad equity and fixed income valuations continue their slide south; the merits of a liquid, diversifying, defensive allocation to listed infrastructure are substantial. Add to this the critical need for investment in essential infrastructure to tackle climate transition and the case has rarely been stronger.
During this session our investment professionals and Mercer Portfolio Manager, Indira Sabitova will be exploring how a listed infrastructure allocation can help steady the ship by generating real returns through investment in structural change.
