Strong long-term demand for infrastructure has led institutional investors to allocate increasingly large amounts of capital to the infrastructure asset class. This growth in allocations has resulted in larger fundraisings by established GPs and the emergence of new funds. In addition, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, and pension funds have continued to build global direct investment teams in order to add capacity. At the same time, the increased allocation to the asset class has resulted in greater competition for assets, higher pricing and, by extension, an acute need for capable talent to source, invest in, advise on, manage and operate infrastructure investments.
In this complex and fluid landscape, Ferguson Partners advises a global client base of investors who pursue equity or debt investment opportunities across data infrastructure, utilities, power and renewables, energy, transportation, water and social infrastructure. We also serve secondaries and primary investors as well as investment banking, advisory firms and governments.
