In the last decade in the global financial market infrastructure funds are developing dynamically in response to the huge demand for infrastructure investments and a shortage of resources for their financing. Infrastructure funds are complementary sources and exist in the form of non-listed funds and funds listed on the capital markets, and their task is the capital commitment in tangible assets on the stage of investment already carried out or prepared for implementation in order to obtain a stable return in the long term. The largest infrastructure funds are concentrated in developed countries in Europe, North America, and Australia and are sponsored by large financial institutions. The most important group interested in buying units of infrastructure funds are institutional investors, whose main motivation is the diversification of the investment portfolio and a high return in a long time. The main institutional investors are pension funds and insurance companies. A survey has confirmed the high importance of infrastructure funds on the European, American and Australian markets with more and more increasing participation of Asian investors.
