Wednesday webinar at one: Risk assessment for infrastructure as an asset class

Wednesday 20 September 2023 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

Infrastructure investments have long been regarded as relatively stable and low-risk options. Traditionally they have particularly appealed to pension funds due to their ability to provide consistent returns over an extended period.

However, recently, there have been fluctuations in the value of both equity, and debt, of some companies, and there is even the prospect that regulators may place constraints on the payment of dividends.

The recent drama at Thames Water with the departure of the CEO  provides an example of how risks from different sources can interact and materialise, with serious consequences.

This webinar will review the major risks of investing in regulated infrastructure companies and will:

  • Summarise the regulatory process and mechanism that sets revenue for companies and allows a rate of return to be earned on the company’s regulatory asset base. 
  • Consider the other stakeholders and the risks that they pose to the regulated company.
