Our investment

The CEFC has made equity commitments totalling $472 million to four leading infrastructure funds and platforms – IFM Australian Infrastructure Portfolio, Macquarie Asset Management Australian Infrastructure Platform, Morrison & Co Growth Infrastructure Fund and QIC Global Infrastructure Fund. 

These four funds and platforms influence major Australian assets including capital city airports and eastern seaboard ports, energy companies, wireless infrastructure, health services and carbon farming initiatives.  

Some 36 national infrastructure assets were being influenced by CEFC investment at December 2022. 

Australia’s progress in cutting emissions will be influenced by how fast and how well we can tackle those areas of economic activity where emissions are hardest to abate, including infrastructure, transport, telecommunications and, increasingly, data centres.
