Gold status: the case for investing in airports globally


PwC’s Alexis Crow explains the compelling prospect for investing in airports.

One trend that flies in the face of populism and protectionist movements around the world is air passenger traffic. In 2018, air passenger traffic hit an all-time high, propelled by compelling demographics around the world. As investor and executives prepare for the next economic downtown, we explore why investing in airports globally remains a compelling prospect for generating returns and long-term growth. The sector presents significant opportunities not only for infrastructure and institutional investors, but also for consumer companies operating around the globe.

About PwC’s Cornering the globe publication series

Cornering the globe is a publication of PwC’s Geopolitical Investing practice, and is intended to highlight key issues our clients should be considering as they think about expanding into global markets. At the macro level, long-term economic and demographic trends indicate an abundance of opportunities to profit and expand in emerging markets. However, the risks of doing business in these regions—such as exchange rate volatility, political uncertainty, meeting the skills gap and shifts in tax and regulation—often hamper decision-making, forcing companies to react to events, rather than prepare for change and capitalize on potential dislocations.

By critically assessing key geopolitical issues that impact our clients, we provide insight into the ways in which companies can build capabilities to weather political and economic change in their foreign operations. Our Geopolitical Investing team combines rigorous insight into the key macroeconomic and geopolitical issues facing business leaders today with deep industry and sector expertise, helping companies to strategically allocate capital to grow specific business units or assets in markets around the world.
