Some 70% of institutional investors that invest in infrastructure intend to make further investments over the next 12 months, up from 40% last October, according to a Preqin survey.
But seventy-three percent either disagree or strongly disagree that the interests of the fund manager and investors are well aligned.
Of those surveyed, 22% believe the greatest infrastructure investment opportunities are in North America, 20% in Western Europe and 19% in emerging markets. The remainder was spread among other locations.
Some 52% believe the private equity fund business model will be used for infrastructure but needs to be adapted to fit the long-term nature of infrastructure investments.
Also, 72% believe management fees and fund carry structure are specific areas of concern as the industry recovers from the economic downturn.
Sixty-three institutional investors responded to the survey done in June by Preqin, an alternative investment research firm.
