Analysis compiled by Associate Member EY, working with GIIA, reveals significant growth in members’ assets under management – rising from $500bn in 17/18 to more than $660bn – with 1,300 assets spanning 49 countries across 6 continents.
Globally, GIIA members’ assets provide the essential infrastructure needed by hundreds of millions of people every day – including utilities, energy, transport, telecommunications and social infrastructure.
Of particular note, members made significant investments in renewable energies increasing capacity to 48,000MW of wind power (up 16,300MW), 33,000MW of solar (up 20,300MW) and 14,800MW of hydro and biomass (up 7,300MW) since 17/18.
Based on responses by members, the findings show that for every £100bn of AUM, members will invest an additional £96.7bn in capex over the next five years – an increase of almost 20% since 17/18.

Following extensive consultation with investor members, GIIA has recently made a submission to the UK Government’s Infrastructure Finance Review.
Conducted jointly by HM Treasury and the Infrastructure Projects Authority, the Infrastructure Finance Reviews looks at the relative strengths and weaknesses of the UK’s infrastructure finance market, the opportunities for the private sector in financing infrastructure, the role of the EIB and the effectiveness of current Government tools to support the supply of infrastructure finance.
GIIA works constructively with governments around the globe to help build a robust evidence base that can provide a strong basis for future informed policy proposals facilitating private investment to meet infrastructure needs.
GIIA is grateful to Associate Member Clifford Chance for their assistance with this submission.
