Navigating Shifting Valuation Standards for Infrastructure Assets

The 2023 InfraMetrics Workshop is an in-person event for investment professionals focusing on how to invest in infrastructure and, in direct relation to that, how to use the infraMetrics data platform to make better-informed investment decisions.

The treatment of illiquid private assets in products that offer daily liquidity is increasingly topical in Australia and a source of debate amongst practitioners and regulators. Are private assets valued fairly? Should there be more transparency on private marks? What fiduciary risks do these questions create? Should trustees be worried? Should auditors?

The need for more frequent asset valuations of illiquid asset in Australian Superannuation Funds is here to stay. But in practice what can be improved that ensures fairness without creating higher investment costs?

Join us at our upcoming workshop, where Dr. Frederic Blanc-Brude, CEO and founder of Scientific Infra and Private Assets, will present the latest data and tools available to estimate the market value of private infrastructure and other private assets at a high frequency, benchmark performance and risk, and improve investment decisions and reporting for managers, consultants and investors alike.

Key Highlights:

  • Private market dynamics: what moves private asset prices and how can it be measured?
  • From appraisals to fair value: what would better practices and disclosures look like?
  • Using market prices to track market dynamics when there are too few comparable transactions: a machine-learning solution to a age-old problem in private markets.
  • Robustness: why a good model is much better than raw data?
  • Benchmarking: better measures of risk and performance show that infrastructure is a very attractive asset class.
