With superannuation naturally seeking the kind of long-run, stable and long-term returns which infrastructure assets provide, there is a clear symmetry between Australia's $770 billion infrastructure investment task and national retirement savings. In spite of this symmetry, finding the right structure to consummate this 'perfect match' has so far eluded Australia's policy makers. Several expert fund managers -- notably AMP Capital Investors, IFM and Hastings -- have already shown what can be achieved through considered investments in major projects. The sustained appetite of foreign funds for domestic infrastructure also highlights the excellent opportunities that are available to astute Australian superannuation funds. No one is arguing for super to be a piggy bank for marginal projects, but the strong appetite of foreign super funds for Australian projects shows that local projects can offer sound returns to local investors if government and industry can get the settings right.
