As one of the most profitable infrastructure investments available in the market now, and with no sign of slowing down as the world moves into an increasingly digital age, shouldn’t you be thinking about data centres?
  • Data Centre REITs are beginning to develop a much broader audience on Wall Street and data centre stocks are getting more investor attention: So what does this mean for you?
  • How can you accurately assess the risk profile of data centre investments? What are the specifics you need to be aware of?
  • Should you only invest through REITs or directly?
  • Is there any appetite from banks to provide senior debt into this market?
