Newsletter for Institutional Investors
Are you familiar with Swissgrid, the national electricity transmission network company in Switzerland? Or the Transitgas line that connects the gas fields in Northern Europe and Russia with Italy – and therefore runs through the heart of Switzerland?
Investments in such long-term infrastructure projects represent a promising diversification opportunity for every institutional portfolio.
With their long-term investment time horizon and steady returns, they are well suited to Swiss pension funds. The expected low correlation to traditional asset classes and low volatility make exposure to infrastructure projects additionally interesting. Particularly in times of very low expected yields, it is important for investment managers to examine this relatively new alternative asset category as part of an overall perspective.
Read our current edition of the Zoom newsletter and find out more about this interesting portfolio addition for Swiss pension funds using two practical examples from the investment group CSA Energy Infrastructure Switzerland.
