Infrastructure assets are attractive because they generally produce stable income and inflation protection over the long term. These characteristics are a good match for our clients’ liabilities and help manage overall portfolio volatility.
We seek to earn absolute returns by investing in private global infrastructure directly, as investors alongside funds or strategic partners, and through external fund relationships. The infrastructure program gives IMCO and its clients global exposure and the portfolio is diversified by geography, sector, development stage and contractual frameworks, which mitigates our risk to any single market or regulatory event.
We have assets primarily in Europe and North America, with significant expertise in domestic infrastructure. In Ontario alone, IMCO has close to $1 billion invested primarily on a direct basis in roads, hydroelectric generating stations, hospitals and other health care services.
