In the 10 years since PEI Media launched Infrastructure Investor, we have faithfully reported on the developments that have unfolded around the asset class. We have witnessed the changes infrastructure has undergone from a nascent asset class to, dare we say it, part of the mainstream, and everything that this has entailed. As infrastructure has evolved, so have we. Our readers have come to rely on us for insight, in-depth features, engaging interviews and specialised sectoral and regional reports.
None of this will change, but the way we deliver it will. And this is the reason behind our new look, which is the culmination of several months’ work to enable us to deliver the content for which Infrastructure Investor is renowned in fresh and exciting ways.
The results of our efforts will be apparent when the June issue hits the desks of our print subscribers. However, we want to give our online readers a taste as well. To that end, we’ll be publishing stories from the June issue online over the coming days.
The first will be our new cover story, where we take an in-depth look at the growing number of asset-leasing transactions. Encompassing everything from aircraft financing to residential heating and cooling systems, we analyse under which circumstances these deals fit into infrastructure strategies, how they differ from more ‘traditional’ investments, and what interested parties should be on the lookout for. Does asset leasing count as infrastructure? The answer very much depends on your definition of the asset class.
A new monthly feature that coincides with our revamp is the Big Debate, in which two industry insiders take opposing views on a current hot topic. Partners Group’s Esther Peiner and Frédéric Blanc-Brude of EDHECinfra kick things off with a debate on whether ESG compliance enhances performance.
Not everything in the redesigned magazine is new. You’ll still be able to find our keynote interview, which this month is with Sujoy Bose, managing director of India’s National Investment and Infrastructure Fund.
Other features you have come to expect will also continue to appear, including commentary from members of our editorial team, news coverage and a wealth of data.
We hope you enjoy our new look as much as we do.
