Born out of the EDHEC-Risk Institute in 2015, EDHECinfra was created with the support of the industry and the public sector, including the G20 and the World Bank, to address the profound knowledge gap faced by infrastructure investors.
We collect, clean and analyse private infrastructure investment data and input it into EDHECinfra’s unique database of infrastructure equity and debt investments and cash flows. We also develop data collection and reporting standards that can be used to make data collection more efficient and reporting more transparent.
Using this extensive and growing database we model the cash flow and discount rate dynamics of private infrastructure equity and debt investments. EDHECinfra derives a series of risk and performance measures that can actually help answer the questions that matter for investors.
Using the performance results from our asset pricing and risk models, we can report the portfolio-level performance of groups of infrastructure equity or debt investments using categorisations (e.g. greenfield vs brownfield) that are most relevant for investors’ investment decisions. The EDHECinfra database and asset pricing technology compute the metrics that investors and regulators need to understand private infrastructure in a multi-asset class context.
Private infrastructure investment indices are needed by asset owners, asset managers and regulators to determine their asset allocation to infrastructure, monitor risk-adjusted performance and calibrate prudential models. EDHECinfra’s eight broad market indices provide global coverage of unlisted infrastructure equity and private debt markets.
EDHECinfra’s European indices are available through an online platform at indices.edhecinfra.com or through Bloomberg (EIPEE, EIPDE).
