Nossaman attorneys Yuliya Oryol, Peter Mixon and Allan Ickowitz provided feedback and comments on drafts of “Bridging Public Pension Funds and Infrastructure Investing,” a white paper co-authored by Clive Lipshitz and Ingo Walter (NYU Stern School of Business).

The paper is a thoughtful evaluation of the sustainability of the largest public pension systems in the United States and the role of infrastructure investing in their portfolios. Lipshitz and Walter argue that infrastructure should become more central to pension portfolios despite the existing challenges for infrastructure development in the United States. In order for public pension plans to benefit from the gains of infrastructure investing, they discuss the importance of improved efficiencies and increased supply of deals – likely through public-private partnerships and other greenfield or repurposed brownfield investing opportunities.
