II Annual Review 2023

Annual Review

The infrastructure sector showed resilience during a tough year



Infrastructure Investor 2023 Annual Review


In 2022, the infrastructure was forced to show more resilience as the search for normalcy continued. The war in Ukraine, an energy crisis, sticky inflation and rising interest rates were all geopolitical factors to contend with. Adapting to such circumstances was essential to thrive, and the sector did just that. Infrastructure Investor’s 2022 Annual Review celebrates the managers, investors and advisers who excelled in their respective fields, and puts the spotlight on key regulatory changes and subsectors that continue to stand out.

Despite the challenges 2021 threw its way, the infrastructure investment industry regained its momentum – the best evidence of that perhaps being fundraising activity, which set a new record in 2021 at $136.5 billion raised. And while deal activity was slightly more muted, there were still noteworthy and high-profile transactions to be had as well as smaller deals notable for their innovation, be it in terms of structure, the parties involved or breaking new ground.
Infrastructure weathered the pandemic remarkably well. Most subsectors bounced back quickly, and infra’s essential nature meant most assets kept on functioning during lockdowns. Certain sub-sectors, such as digital infra and renewables, have even thrived. All of which leaves us in the enviable position of finding much to celebrate as we look back on 2020.
