Alternatives – Netværksmøde 2021-IV

Theme – Are Infrastructure Investments an efficient inflation hedge?
In several countries around the globe, inflation has reached levels not seen for several years and often pre-GFC. With monetary and fiscal policy being very accommodative and rising energy prices, focus has shifted from deflation to rising inflation. Will it be transitory or are we seeing a new regime with high and persistent inflation?

Infrastructure investments are often said to be an effective hedge against inflation, either due to embedded contractual escalators or simply the fact that the often monopolistic structures allow for rising prices in an inflationary environment. But are they really a good hedge or is it all kippers and curtains?

To set the scene, we have invited Frank Hvid Petersen, Earlybird Research & Education to share his views on risks and outlook for inflation. Afterwards Roger Pim, Senior Investment Director, Aberdeen Standard Investments and Henrik Olejasz Larsen, Chief Investment Officer, Sampension will discuss infrastructure investments as inflation hedges.
