Infrastructure Debt

Managed accounts customized to each client’s unique needs.

MetLife Investment Management (MIM) offers an Infrastructure Debt strategy that seeks to originate investment grade, senior secured notes in already contracted brownfield entities with proven track records. MIM believes that core infrastructure debt is attractive given the underlying essential hard assets, stable projected cash flows, high barriers to entry, government support and generally low historical loss rates. Typical investments include pipelines, ports, bridges, roads, airports and power facilities, using a global strategy to optimize transaction flow. MIM’s advantages include our size, which allows us to be a direct originator for issuers, along with our extensive relationships, which enhance our direct lending capabilities and overall transaction volume.
