IIF takes a conservative yet opportunistic approach to infrastructure investing. Our focus is on creating a widely diversified portfolio across sectors, stages, risks and geographies. To accomplish this, we invest in infrastructure assets that have high barriers to entry, are protected from inflation and the volatility of economic cycles, and which provide revenue and cash flow growth. When making investments, we understand that things don’t always go according to plan. In our view, this is critical to the long-term success of the companies in which we invest.
IIF is committed to its proven investment strategy, but at the same time is flexible enough to adapt to market and other fluctuations, and to recognize the evolution of infrastructure investment opportunities.
We are patient investors, watching and waiting for the right time and the right conditions to invest. Raising 3 funds has taught us the importance of looking at long-term value creation for our investors.
IIF shares its resources and wealth of experience in operations, project & corporate finance with company management, to help drive their main strategic and operating activities.
We offer multiple co-investment opportunities to our investors, which we manage for them.
Infrastructure investing is not a passive endeavor. You’ve got to roll up your sleeves and take the driver’s seat, working and guiding management, investing in processes and providing resources, to drive operational improvement.
We push our investment capabilities to the maximum. If it’s a greenfield asset, we don’t sit back once construction starts or even when it’s finished; we stay on until they’re fully operational. With brownfield assets, we get involved and actively manage them for optimum operational efficiency and profitability. And if potential synergies exist between assets, we’ll find them. The heart of our approach is to drive value optimization however and wherever possible.
