KEYNOTE : A 'Moneyball' Approach to Closing the $5.4 Trillion Infrastructure Finance Gap: InfraTech, Data, and Financial Innovation

The US is underinvesting in infrastructure, resulting in macro-economic impacts for cities and regions. The American Society for Civil Engineers estimates that the finance gap will be $4.5trn by 2025, resulting in a loss of 2.5 M. jobs. Deferred maintenance and inadequate funding models have resulted in demographic inequalities of access to quality infrastructure, further exacerbating economic disparities. Globally, $5.4 trn. of capital earmarked for infrastructure sits on the sidelines annually because of mis-matched business and risk-return models. According to a recent OECD study, less than 1% of pension funds are invested in infrastructure as an asset class. How can we unlock this capital? We argue the answer lies in data.
The definition of infrastructure in the digital age is changing, asset ownership is becoming blurred, and new data-driven operating and financial models are emerging. Whether transportation infrastructure such as roads and bridges, or water, energy and waste-to-energy systems, intelligent infrastructure is enabled by IoT and communications. By "twinning" infrastructure into digital assets, informational inefficiencies can be uncovered that change how we design, value, price and invest in infrastructure assets. So-called "infratech" models have been piloted in private financing of infrastructure, but they are trickling down to public-private partnerships and public finance. Cities and States can harness the power of information to identify new cash flows and equity value from improved operations or new derivative products and services. We are referring to this as a Moneyball approach to link data to hidden value and investment opportunities. Tomorrow's digitized infrastructure is resulting in new operational models that can be financed using performance bonds, securitized products, swaps and options for risk transfer and digital financing models including blockchain tokens. The value of information derived from the asset will outstrip that of the physical asset itself, as infrastructure is going "tech", impacting their design. Data-driven financing models, privacy and cybersecurity considerations will be discussed based on real world pilots.
