Estimates show that 75% of the world’s infrastructure in 2050 does not exist today. The urban planning of the future is expected to be much more transformative than its reactive history. Infrastructure is undoubtedly one of the sectors with the highest growth potential in alternative investments.

The Infrastructure sector is at a crossroads of many disruptions. Its growth is driven by a rising population, changing needs, shifts in capital availability, evolving social and environmental behavior, technological transformations, and rapid urbanization. On top of this, the Covid-19 pandemic has introduced an altogether new set of challenges and opportunities, each with their own investment needs. In this context, it is of vital importance to develop resilience and agility in infrastructure funds.


For many years, infrastructure asset managers have chosen to domicile their European investment platforms in Luxembourg. This is due to a set of favorable conditions which make Luxembourg an ideal spot for infrastructure fund set-up. Luxembourg’s legal framework is flexible and far-reaching enough that it meets the needs of a wide range of European and global infrastructure investors.
