Infrastructure Debt

Our impressive track record, dating back to 2001, demonstrates our ability to generate high risk-adjusted returns, while preserving capital through the highly skilled selection of investments and the active management of those investments

Whitehelm has a long and successful track-record in investing in infrastructure debt.  Our highly experienced team has successfully invested over A$2.1 billion in over 47 senior and subordinated issues in infrastructure businesses, generating strong returns of over 10.0% p.a. with zero defaults, zero negative IRRs and zero distressed investments.

These opportunities are developed through an extensive international network of issuers, underwriters and financial sponsors, allowing us to source and select assets which produce superior risk-adjusted returns for clients.
