Jacob Capital Management Inc.’s genesis was on the emergence of a long-term trend of increasing global infrastructure investments. Despite volatile capital markets in recent years, this trend continues to gain momentum.
Various reputable studies peg the global infrastructure deficit at between $30 to $70 trillion dollars. Moreover, infrastructure related spending is expected to triple over the next two decades to sustain global economic growth. In the developed world, jurisdictions are dealing with once advanced infrastructure that now is at the end of its lifecycle. Whereas in the developing world like China and India, new layers of infrastructure are being created for the first time to support modernizing economies.
The Jacob Capital Management Inc. team works across the entire infrastructure spectrum. However, the bulk of the team’s work to date has been in the global power sector. More specifically, work in the renewable power sector. The Jacob Capital Management Inc. team was the first investment banking team in Canada to focus on renewables.
Many of the drivers for renewable power adoption have shifted in the last 3-5 years. Despite this shift, renewable power is now the fastest type of new generation coming online in many of world’s largest economies.
Infrastructure related markets pose unique hurdles for investors and other participants. This can range from highly regulated environments to unique financial hurdles. Jacob Capital Management Inc. is committed to helping clients navigate these unique challenges from inception to production.
