Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


Commissioned by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) this research report enhances understanding of the infrastructure investment landscape within six countries, namely Canada, China, India, Singapore, the UK and the US. The research explores the drivers behind the growth in private investment and examines the evolution in infrastructure investment within the six countries over the last decade. The investigation places specific emphasis on investment into greenfield infrastructure projects and includes an exploration of the factors constraining project development pipelines and the implications for private investors. Through a comprehensive series of interviews with investors, developers, policy makers and advisers, the research produced an evidence base to inform the discussion on the growth of private infrastructure provision, on future policy developments and on the evolution of infrastructure as an investment asset class. Our research has shown that more efficient procurement and investment models for greenfield projects would also enhance private sector investment flows, which in turn would contribute to the realisation of the societal and economic benefits associated with new infrastructure provision.
