Infrastructure funds are private equity vehicles that invest in a wide range of assets—including assets that could be described as transportation, energy and utility, communications, and “social” infrastructure, and investments that may be specific to a particular asset or in a company that develops such assets or is otherwise involved in their operation. Like other private equity funds, they have limited lifespans, typically five to ten years. They often attract capital commitments from investors with appetites for relatively stable, long-term cash flows, many of which have liabilities stretching over several decades. General partners of infrastructure funds are often able to leverage those commitments during the investment period.
