Research & Promotion

A clear understanding of the sheer size of the investment required to upgrade and replace ageing infrastructure is essential to tackle the funding challenges that lie ahead. 


Listed infrastructure companies will play an crucial role in bridging the infrastructure investment gap, as Governments fall short. 

In working with listed companies to highlight their efforts, GLIO plays a key role in increasing investors awareness and supporting the continued growth of the asset class.

A steady high quality stream of research and education material is essential to help investors understand the underlying dynamics of global infrastructure investment, and where listed infrastructure fits into the broader investment picture.
