Infrastructure funds are widely recognised as innovative financing tools that support economic expansion and long-term national competitiveness in many countries. By leveraging private capital and government support, infrastructure funds allow countries to finance the large infrastructure projects essential for their development. For project developers and investors, infrastructure funds provide opportunities to participate in infrastructure projects with varying levels of risk and return.
The Capital Market Supervisory Board (CMSB), under the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SEC), has issued criteria, conditions and procedures for the establishment and management of infrastructure funds in Thailand. Applications to establish an infrastructure fund may now be submitted to the SEC for approval.

Advantages of Infrastructure Funds

Infrastructure Funds provide some distinct advantages over schemes financed solely by state enterprises through budget borrowing or bond issuing and/or private investor financing. Firstly, infrastructure funds provide project developers with alternative sources of funds for their projects and reduce their borrowing needs. Secondly, both small and large investors can invest in the form of ‘investment units’. Thirdly, funds help the country overall by avoiding the increase of public debt.
