Data: the next major commodity
According to research, mobile data usage will rise to 701,000 petabytes by 2021 - up from 43,000 in 2015. As the world becomes increasingly reliant on the internet, companies are striving to keep up with this demand – by developing new data centres, upgrading cell phone towers, designing new wireless technologies and laying down fibre wire. Since this theme isn’t going away, data will likely remain a significant investment focus for quite some time.01.
Many infrastructure assets are designed to stand the test of time – think bridges, roads, water pipes and so on. Despite this, they require regular maintenance lest they fall into disrepair. In many parts of the world, governments are struggling to keep up. Jeremy Anagnos explains how this creates opportunities for infrastructure investors to partake in (and reap the rewards from) the stable level of upkeep requires to keep our most essential assets working as we’d expect.02.
Renewables: invest in the inevitable
As industry and governments move away from coal power generation to renewable sources, infrastructure companies are working on developing wind turbines, solar farms and other technologies. On top of this, though, they also need to lay the groundwork to connect these new energy sources to the grid, creating additional investment potential.03.
