    Who thinks investors maybe expecting too much from Infrastructure debt investment?
Despite all the media hype and recent success of the infrastructure debt fund investment class, there are some naysayers out there that have and will continue to say that investors are putting too much stock (literally and figuratively) into investing into infrastructure. The reasons for their continued pessimism are varied and vast but the numbers don’t lie, so if you are looking to investing into the infrastructure debt fund class, carefully consider the rest of this article lest you invest unwisely.
Why it’s not worth the Hype
Infrastructure debt funds are a highly attractive investment opportunity for two reasons. They offer a pretty alternative to low-yield government bonds and they offer a long term cash flow option. For these two reasons alone, infrastructure funding seems like a healthy and viable option for a good return on a simple investment.
But many experts are saying that despite these two good attributes, there are a whole host of other reasons why infrastructure debt funds can also become a black hole of an investment in that it will eventually seek to suck you dry of all your money.
According to some experts, infrastructure debt funds are an unpredictable beast in that the supply of infrastructure investment projects is few and far between. If you are lucky enough to find one, they say that usually, investors are being swindled out of their money in that they are paying top dollar and beyond for investment assets that have a high risk profile. While to some, the risk profile is a a necessary evil in order to obtain a good return, experts are saying that the risk involved with many of the current offered infrastructure investment opportunities is far out weighing the advantages of the potential returns and ultimately should be avoided at all costs.
Another reason many experts tend to look unfavorably upon infrastructure debt fund projects is that it is costing more and more to invest in these projects, due to rising demand and an unfortunate inability to keep up with that demand. This results in an ever fluctuating infrastructure debt price, an indication that is certain investment sector is extremely volatile, a word that is not looked upon with great favor in the investment world. Investors want to be able to expect an average of a certain amount of returns from their investments, with the extreme unpredictability of the infrastructure debt funding world that assurance is hard to come by.
