For Canadian pension funds looking to increase their allocation to infrastructure, this massive need represents a significant opportunity, especially if they take a global perspective. This Monday Minute will look at how the infrastructure landscape is evolving rapidly around the world, including across sectors such as transportation, energy, and utilities. And it’s not just about bridges and toll roads anymore – opportunities open to pension investors now include growing access to digital infrastructure and projects designed to address climate change.
