Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners is a leading global infrastructure investment platform.
Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners pursues a global OECD core-plus strategy focused on the acquisition of private infrastructure assets with the potential to be transformed into core assets.* We define “core-plus” assets as those that have the underlying characteristics of core assets, but are undervalued because they are being operated or managed in a less than optimal manner. Such assets may include carve-outs, privatizations, generally undermanaged assets, or assets with the potential for scalable expansion through organic growth or follow-on acquisitions.
As an infrastructure investor, we seek assets with long useful lives that perform essential services to society while generating stable, predictable cash flows that are linked to inflation. Our focus sectors include Energy & Utilities, Oil & Gas Pipelines, Transportation and Telecommunications. We take an opportunistic approach across various other sectors.
We have a strong track record of differentiated deal sourcing through our network of relationships and Morgan Stanley’s global franchise and we have exclusively negotiated a large majority of our investments.
We take a “hands on” approach to creating value. We prefer strong governance positions, typically through controlling or co-controlling stakes, so that we have the ability to execute planned operational improvements and, over the medium to long term, build and exit a self-sufficient asset.
