The Rothschild family is well-known for having financed large infrastructure projects from the 19th century onwards, such as railways, the Suez Canal and hospitals. In keeping with this long tradition, the Edmond de Rothschild Group is today a leading player in advisory services and financing for major infrastructure projects. The Group's expertise in infrastructure debt offers long-term investors stable returns while supporting the development of the real economy.

Infrastructure contributes to value creation and global connectivity. Thanks to the positive external effects of infrastructure investment, private companies can benefit from a ripple effect, thus increasing regional competitiveness. However, in many countries public funding is sorely lacking fort the construction and renovation of critical infrastructure projects.
Infrastructure debt is ideal for long-term investors as it carries long maturities and presents an attractive credit quality profile. The cash flows generated are stable, by their very nature. Moreover, this fixed income segment offers investors an opportunity for diversification and protection against inflation.
Capitalising on a financing advisory business for infrastructure assets, this division of the Edmond de Rothschild Group is managed by a very experienced team. The Group therefore benefits from privileged access to a diversified flow of projects. Because of its long-established involvement in this area, it is recognised as a key partner by all market participants in the value chain.
