GIIA is pleased to launch the results of the latest Infrastructure Pulse Survey for both the Americas and European markets, produced in partnership with Alvarez & Marsal.
The Infrastructure Pulse Survey provides a regular temperature check of investor sentiment in the sector as well as identifying emerging trends and attitudes from the investment community.
Key highlights from the 2021 Q1 Infrastructure Pulse Survey include:
- An overall positive view of the fundraising environment in both Europe and the Americas
- In Europe, investor sentiment remains strong towards the Nordics following increased deal activity in Q4, 2020 while in the Americas attractiveness for investment was stable or slightly higher than the previous quarter with Brazil showing the most significant improvement, albeit still with a slightly negative overall
- In both markets investors were most bullish about opportunities in communications infrastructure, followed by sustainable energy generation.
Speaking on the release of the results GIIA CEO Lawrence Slade said while the ongoing global health pandemic continues to provide a challenging backdrop for investors, it was encouraging to see that sentiment remained positive.
“The profound impacts of Covid will be felt on the infrastructure sector for many years to come. However, as the world emerges from the pandemic, and with optimism stemming from the vaccine rollout, infrastructure can play a significant role in helping economies rebound as well as addressing new challenges around a changing climate and increasing digitalisation.”
