Infrastructure investing has always been a sector of interest for investors for its stable and long-term returns. The credit crisis, lack of government funding, and aging infrastructure have combined to push investing in this sector to the forefront. There is currently a $1.2 trillion shortfall in funding infrastructure projects, allowing for public-private partnerships to take advantage of private capital.
