The Global Listed Infrastructure Organisation (GLIO) is the representative body for the $2 trillion market capitalisation listed infrastructure asset class. GLIO raises awareness through education and promotion, targeting the global investment community.
While many large asset owners invest in infrastructure projects directly, we believe that listed infrastructure companies offer the potential to complement and enhance net total returns, and provide unparalleled diversification opportunities in a mixed or blended approach to the asset class. Asset owners will gravitate towards listed infrastructure investments, attracted by liquidity, global and sector diversification, underpinned by stable income streams.
In addition, listed infrastructure offers investors access to experienced management teams and the transparency of the public markets.
