The demand pressure and the plethora of evidences observed in the form of increasing infrastructure financing gap, ageing infrastructure, environmental factors, such as climate change and rising quality standards are factors attracting institutional and private sector participation in infrastructure investment. Therefore, the search for innovative means of financing infrastructure has become incessant. Also, the features of the financial landscape, especially in a financial crisis has further underpinned the significance of looking beyond the present infrastructure need, to a more sustained infrastructure financing scheme anticipated from institutional investors.
A well established capital market has therefore been identified as a viable option for long term and steady global capital flows to financing infrastructure projects; else, the burden will remain on governments to offer direct or indirect support to private investors in attracting financing for infrastructure development. This book therefore conceptually investigates the potentials of the capital market and institutional investors’ capital flows in bridging the global infrastructure funding gap. A fundamental conclusion from the book revealed that institutional investors particularly pension funds have the capacity to pool enormous resources into the infrastructure market, thus emphatically projecting them as a force to be reckoned with in the global infrastructure investments.
