Opening panel discussion: current state of North America infrastructure investing
Money managers raised record amounts of capital for investment in infrastructure over the last year before a macro-driven slowdown in fundraising in 2H22. The North American infrastructure and energy markets in 2022 increased 10% YoY in investments value, showing robust dealmaking figures despite global economic uncertainties. Deal value in the US and Canada reached USD 346 bn in 2022 - about 10% less than Europe, where USD 382bn in transactions closed. That was a narrower gap than in 2021, when North America deal activity by value lagged Europe by 24%. M&A deals took the spotlight, accounting for USD 150bn of the total market share, according to Infralogic.
This panel will take a broad look at the landscape for infrastructure investing as funds seek to deploy capital in a competitive and macro-economically fraught environment.
- What does the M&A pipeline hold for investors over the next 12 months?
- What are some of the market high points, and what are areas to steer clear from? Where are current valuation benchmarks?
- How are investors handling the increased cost of acquisition financing? What type of assets can be levered in this environment?
