REAL ASSETS: NEW CONSULTING REQUIREMENTS IN THE FIELD OF "INFRA-STATES"
Real estate investors looking for high yield investments are diversifying their approach. Infrastructures are, by definition, transferable assets that offer security thanks to their underlying physical nature. Real estate and infrastructure therefore tend to converge into a category referred to as "real assets" or "infra-states". This category includes: railway stations that are becoming major shopping centres due to the flow of travellers; airports that are often the focus of their region; sports amenities, ports, heating networks, renewable energy facilities etc.
For infrastructure investment funds aware of the real estate and land aspects of such facilities, or real estate funds targeting new investment opportunities in facilities that meet an increasing social need, many different options are available. These options include: direct investment, Private Public Partnerships, concession system or even an ad hoc vehicle.

The aim is to generate an additional revenue stream for the infrastructure’s business plan. CBRE Valuation can also consult on an on-demand basis, offering strategic analysis on the future of a facility or an infrastructure.
