EDHEC Infra & Private Assets Research Institute
EDHEC Infra & Private Assets Research Institute is a venture of EDHEC Business School and a provider of indexes and analytics for the private equity and debt investment universe in which the majority of infrastructure assets are not publicly traded. Prices of these assets and their evolution are therefore hard to assess: to close this gap, EDHEC Infra & Private Assets offers analytics and calculated indexes that already cover 25 countries representing an investable universe of 7,000 companies.
« As part of EDHEC Business School, EDHEC Infra & Private Assets embraces the school’s agenda of “Impact future generations” and is convinced of the social value of its work.
We are the only independent provider of financial research and data on infrastructure investment, and our team is fully dedicated to our users .»
Frédéric Blanc-Brude, Director of the institute
EDHEC Infra & Private Assets provides indices and analysis to infrastructure investors, as the pricing of infrastructure assets - the majority of which are not listed on the stock market - has traditionally suffered from a lack of information. Based in Singapore and London, the Institute fills this gap with calculated indices and analysis covering 25 countries and around 7,000 companies.
