Edited by Jeffrey Altman of Finadvice AG, Best Practice in Infrastructure Asset Management covers the fundamentals of infrastructure asset management, providing an essential overview of effectively managing an asset to create ongoing value for all stakeholders.
Creating and maintaining value for all stakeholders
Understanding what constitutes best practice in managing infrastructure assets is at the forefront of today’s infrastructure investments around the world. The success or failure of an investment in infrastructure often relies on an investor's ability to manage the dynamics between owners, operators and regulators.
It is now widely acknowledged that one of the value propositions to the infrastructure asset class includes creating value through operational performance and stakeholder management rather than just relying on highly geared financial structures.
Best Practice in Infrastructure Asset Management offers multiple perspectives and practical advice in a series of insightful chapters presented by leading experts in asset management and change management; and at limited partnerships, multi-managers, insurance, banking & finance, legal and ESG institutions.
Value-creation case studies
This unique publication presents a series of in-depth case studies that reveal how owners have adopted best practice asset management in a broad range of industries from airports to renewables to utilities. They reveal how they have created financial and non-financial value by adopting the best practices that are shaping the infrastructure asset class in the 21st century.
