Infrastructure plays an increasing role in investors portfolio allocations. 53% of institutional investors plan to increase their allocation to infrastructure over the long term.*  A balanced, blended approach to infrastructure investment provides stable income, global diversification and transparency within a cost-effective framework.

GLIO publishes a common coverage of listed infrastructure companies by engaging with index providers and global investors. This process has enabled a clearer understanding of the definitions of infrastructure and results in a consensus selection of global listed infrastructure corporates, infrastructure investment companies and MLPs. 

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. Working with the investment media enables GLIO to convey the benefits of listed infrastructure investment to a broad global audience. 



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 look 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 and disclosure required by the public markets.
