Against a backdrop of continued macroeconomic uncertainty, societal instability, weaponized cyber capabilities, acute environmental threats and geopolitical frictions, infrastructure investors will need to be adaptable to ensure the longevity and security of their assets.
The 2020 Global Risks for Infrastructure Map, produced by Marsh & McLennan Advantage Insights in partnership with GIIA, provides some guidance for investors looking to navigate the choppy waters ahead. The Map provides investors with a view of the key risks and includes a curation of case studies evaluating ways in which these risks have affected infrastructure assets in recent years.
In the coming months, Marsh & McLennan Advantage Insights and GIIA will also release in-depth reports on two crucial global risks facing the infrastructure sector: climate change, and the emergence of transformative technologies.
The first, Global Risks for Infrastructure: The Climate Challenge takes a closer look at the impact of climate-induced physical and transition risks on the infrastructure sector, and will outline viable mitigation solutions and strategic opportunities for investors.
While the second report, Global Risks for Infrastructure: Transformative Technologies, provides a focused overview of the ways in which transformative technologies are changing the infrastructure sector, and provide frameworks that investors can consider for future-proofing their assets.
