In the past decade, infrastructure has remained a fairly stable asset class. Default rates have been low. Even with the lower default rates, recoveries have been high. Banks, while lending to infrastructure projects, and equity providers while executing these projects, have been able to price risk correctly and obtain a satisfactory return. However, this is unlikely to remain the case in the next decade due to the impact of technological disruption, which will have a seismic impact on the infrastructure sector.
