Infrastructure investing has historically been a relatively boring affair that passive investors could count on to produce attractive, reliable returns. But as government funding dries up and the profitability of traditional projects dwindles, investors are migrating toward toward new types and new ways of investing. This succinct report from a team of Boston Consulting Group professionals provides insights that will enable investors, fund managers and regulators to keep pace with the seismic changes in this investment sphere.

Infrastructure investors will now have to take a more hands-on approach to projects than they have in the past. Passive investments in bloated government infrastructure projects with dependable, double-digit yields are giving way to private forms of financing for smaller, more streamlined ventures. The change marks a departure from the decades-old model of conventional state-financed projects that typically focus on regulated monopolies such as bridges and water treatment plants, and that require little or no active participation by investors.
