Infrastructures & Industrial Innovation

Infrastructures  & Industrial Innovation
  • Pininvest Analysis

Funds invested in infrastructure companies are for the most part global, including developed market securities as well as US listed companies (but ignoring emerging economies)

On basis of daily price history, it appears that funds invested in specialized companies – dedicated to water infrastructure or to electrical grid – have an advantage over funds invested in more global firms, albeit at the cost of higher average volatility

The ETFs do not include the powerful engineering conglomerates from emerging markets (Brazil, India, China…), likely to benefit most from expanding economies and growing expectations, both in their home markets and in vaster regions, where they gear up for stiff competition with more established global firms

It is unclear if the positive market perception, especially for water infrastructure and preservation, is a long term trend benefiting firms in advanced markets or will be subject to reversal
