Companies must derive 75% of EBITDA from the following infrastructure groups: Energy Transportation & Storage, Communications Infrastructure, Transportation, Renewable Energy and Regulated Network Utilities.  

Timely information, investment research and statistics, plus backing from the major global banks within the GLIO network, ensures investors have key analytics at their fingertips to help make investment decisions.
