When properly structured, secondaries can help deliver attractive investment characteristics to help meet client needs.

The infrastructure secondary market has emerged on the back of strong growth in the primary market. Through secondary investments in established funds, we aim to provide investors with the ability to obtain immediate exposure to a portfolio of high-quality and diversified global infrastructure assets with attractive investment characteristics, including increased liquidity and shorter duration.

Leveraging Macquarie’s infrastructure expertise

As the world’s largest infrastructure manager,1 Macquarie Asset Management has a long history in the sector. Understanding the infrastructure market landscape and applying geographical and sector expertise to our underwriting is fundamental to secondaries investing.

Our experienced and dedicated team has deep expertise across infrastructure and secondaries investing. We have a structured, repeatable and disciplined secondaries investment process that seeks to deliver on our targeted objectives and meet client needs.

Macquarie’s history in infrastructure gives us a comprehensive sourcing capability that helps provide differentiated access to deal flow. This includes decades of limited partner relationships and a network of alumni, partners and relationships that provide direct access to most general partners of infrastructure funds.

"Growing allocations to infrastructure and healthy capital deployment levels in the primary market, across a diversified set of sectors and strategies, is expected to create a favourable environment for the growth of secondary funds.”
