The Wealth of Cities - The Investment Implications of Urban Expansion
Urban expansion offers investment opportunities that coincide with the need for institutional investors to look beyond short-term gains. The urban mega-trend holds promise in the areas of infrastructure, real estate, and consumer goods and services, and the agricultural supply chain.
Accelerating urban expansion offers rich investment opportunities that coincide with the need for institutional investors to look beyond short-term gains as they seek new ways to build long-term strategies. The urban mega-trend holds promise particularly in the areas of urban infrastructure, real estate, an evolving agricultural supply chain, and consumer goods and services, according to a white paper released by Prudential Investment Management, the $918 billion asset management business of Prudential Financial, Inc. The white paper, entitled The Wealth of Cities, offers a new view of opportunities provided by urban expansion, with specific investment ideas in emerging and developed markets across a range of public and private vehicles that offer attractive avenues for investors.
