“An industrial vision, responsible investments and managed risk”.
A long-term approach is essential to the infrastructure sector. Meridiam’s projects provide long-term investors with assets which match their long-term liabilities.
The Meridiam model is built on two principal commitments:
Sustainable yield for investors over a 25-year duration, generated from equity investments in risk adjusted assets, partially protected from economic downturns.
Alignment of interest between Meridiam and the public sector, by means of a contractual partnership for the construction, optimization and management of projects, which are vital to the development of the community.
Within OECD countries, investment in infrastructure which serves the public interest necessitates a socially responsible approach. Meridiam has developed an ethics charter and corporate governance philosophy which covers the management of all its investments, and takes account of all sustainable development and environmental requirements necessary to meet public obligations.
Demographic changes and the growth in retirement savings have provided an opportunity to utilize retirement funds for productive long-term investment in assets that are intended to be less volatile than traditional public equities.
Infrastructure investment creates a positive cycle of growth, providing essential networks and services for today’s generations, stimulating economic growth and improving the standard of living for current and future generations.
