Morgan Stanley discusses its $4 billion infrastructure fund

Sadek Wahba and John Myers of Morgan Stanley say up to 20% of the fund will be invested in non-OECD markets like China and India over the next three years.
In mid-May Morgan Stanley announced that it had closed the Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners fund with $4 billion of equity commitments, exceeding the firmÆs initial target of $2.5 billion.

Sadek Wahba, the New York-based chief investment officer and global head of the fund, and John Myers, the Hong Kong-based Asia head, recently talked to FinanceAsia about infrastructure development and the fund.

Tell me about the fund.

Wahba Our objective is to be able to invest on a global basis and today we expect to invest about 40% in the Americas, principally North America, 40% in Europe and 20% in non-OECD countries which will principally be in China and India.
