a vehicle to invest in a domestic infrastructure portfolio and contribute to the
nation building goals set out in the government's infrastructure
Macquarie expects the fund could swell to as much as $1.2 billion
and said that the amount of domestic Mexico investment,from the Mexican
government and pension funds,shows confidence in the fund's concept and in
Mexico's infrastructure development plans.
Ramsey said the fund should
give annual returns of 13-17%,and represents a relatively low-risk option for
pension funds looking for stable long-term investments.
The commitment of
Mexico investment capital from Australia is just the latest in a rush
of foreign companies committing to business and investments in Mexico.
As the Mexican economy comes back from the financial crisis of 2009 it is fast
