Transforming the Global Infrastructure Market through Technology

Infra-Tech Capital is a Singapore-based fund focused on investing private equity in companies utilizing technology to provide improved infrastructure services, generate higher returns and help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We have the investment experience and operational expertise in the infrastructure and technology markets as well as an established network of government relations in emerging markets to pioneer development of the infra-tech market.

Singapore offers a unique combination of capital, technology, urban management expertise and financial market framework to address the global infrastructure challenge. Our business model leverages Singapore’s robust infrastructure, technology & financial market ecosystems.

Impact objectives are integrated into our investment and portfolio management methodology. We work with our investee companies and leverage our network of operational relationships to help achieve SDGs in key infrastructure sectors.

Overview

The State of Global Infrastructure Market

Global population is projected to grow by almost 2 billion people by 2040. Rural to urban migration trends continue worldwide, swelling the urban population by 49% — creating a massive demand for urban infrastructure.

Global infrastructure investment needs are estimated to be $97 trillion by 2040, with a projected shortfall of $18 trillion. Governments cannot afford to finance the investment gap, and public-private partnerships, accounting for only 5-10% of infrastructure investments, have failed to attract sufficient amount of private capital.

Old Technology

Use of obsolete technologies perpetuates inefficiencies and centralized delivery models, leading to lack of private competition and limited choice for consumers.

Government Bureaucracy

Financing and delivery of infrastructure often requires excessive government involvement, which leads to bureaucratic delays and corruption.

Liquidity

Infrastructure assets require long-term investments, which are currently illiquid and non-tradeable, and therefore only a small pool of investors can invest in them.

Disrupting the Multi-Trillion Dollar Global Infrastructure Market

The Infra-tech market is growing exponentially.

Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchains and Renewable Energy are providing more efficient and cheaper ways to deliver infrastructure services.

Infra-tech minimizes the role of governments, creates market competition, and offers choice to consumers and businesses.

Importantly, infra-tech solutions offer unparalleled potential to deliver impact vis-à-vis the SDGs.

About Us

Investment Thesis

(Infrastructure + Technology) Investments = High Returns + Market Transformation

Traditional infrastructure investors are locked in project funding models. Infra-tech investments require models for investing in infrastructure companies utilizing disruptive technologies. Infra-Tech investments offer higher returns, reduced government risk and shorter investment horizons.

We invest equity in infrastructure companies utilizing technology to provide improved services and generate higher returns. Our target investments include renewable energy, battery storage, green urban mobility, AI-based energy-efficient water purification, IOT-based smart city development, clean technologies, among others.

Infra-Tech Capital was established to meet the very high barriers to entry in the infra-tech investment market which include infrastructure & technology investment experience; infrastructure domain expertise; operational experience; and an established network of very strong government relationships.

We leverage our expertise, experience and network of relationships to ensure that our investments have Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) impact.
