Medibank was chickenfeed compared to looming state sell-offs

A wave of state asset privatisations in the new year will provide big opportunities for global infrastructure investors, and could even eclipse the Medibank bonanza.

The federal government’s $5.7 billion sell-off of Medibank Private stole the limelight for investors in the second half of this year. But that deal will be dwarfed by the state asset privatisations that will be set in motion in the new year.

Among the assets on the block via long-term leases will be New South Wales’ electricity transmission and distribution networks, known as the poles and wires; Queensland’s electricity generators and distributors; and the Port of Melbourne.
