Listed Infrastructure and Real Asset Securities: Strong Relative Value Versus Private Alternatives
There are significant long-term opportunities for institutional investors in the listed infrastructure and real assets securities space.  Relative to the private infrastructure asset class, t listed infrastructure securities provides complementary geographic and sector exposures concurrent with similar behavioral return attributes and cashflow drivers. Listed infrastructure securities appear to be trading at significant valuation discounts relative to private infrastructure investments. For these reasons, listed infrastructure and real assets securities may offer the opportunity for institutional investors to enhance their infrastructure risk-return profile while providing a greater measure of diversification and liquidity.

And Much More! Review the Preliminary Agenda for more speakers and sessions. Check back often for updates!
