Investing with an Advantage

Making an impact

We believe that attractive infrastructure investment opportunities are more likely to be unlocked through close partnership among labor, government, and private capital.

Investments from our Infrastructure Advantage Strategy have had a significant effect on local labor forces and economies, which is only expected to increase as the strategy’s portfolio continues to grow*.

Deal Milestone - Long Ridge Energy Terminal

On March 30, 2022, one of the Infrastructure Advantage Strategy’s marquee investments conducted a successful demonstration using hydrogen-blended fuel to generate electricity. This monumental achievement marked the first time an H-Class “utility-scale” gas turbine utilized hydrogen in a commercially operating power plant. 


We have assembled a dedicated team that integrates investment, labor, and government expertise to source and execute infrastructure investments that align with our investors’ priorities. We believe the relationships, knowledge, and understanding of these key stakeholder constituencies are differentiated factors that enable us to execute on the strategy. 


The Infrastructure Advantage Strategy has adopted a world-class Responsible Contactor Policy, developed in collaboration with North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) and other labor organizations. It promotes fair benefits, wages, working conditions, and training opportunities for workers on projects for the Infrastructure Advantage Strategy.

  • Competitive building process
  • Construction and operation
  • Contractors with a responsible track record
  • Project Labor Agreements
  • Workplace protections
  • Advance notice to signatory contractors
  • Enforcement mechanisms

In 2020, NABTU evaluated real estate and infrastructure asset managers on the content and commitment demonstrated in their responsible contractor practices and policies. We received the second-highest grade among responding managers, and a perfect score in 8 out of the 10 categories assessed.
