Social infrastructure in Europe - Franklin Templeton Investments
This paper defines social infrastructure and provides an overview of the burgeoning investment opportunity in Europe.
Franklin Templeton defines social infrastructure as the physical assets that facilitate social services, helping build strong communities. Assets include healthcare and education facilities, social and affordable housing, and buildings related to justice, emergency and civic services. Governments continue to account for the majority of investments in social infrastructure. However, the 2008 global financial crisis and subsequent recession led to cutbacks in government spending. This, and the growing demand for social infrastructure in Europe, provides opportunities for institutional investors to participate in the sector.
