The TICCS® Geo-economic Classification TICCS® 2020 √
The EDHECinfra data-collection process includes recording the GIS data of infrastructure assets in order to understand their exact physical positions . To qualify this information, and using the insights above, the third TICCS® pillar uses four classes of geo-economic exposure to classify infrastructure companies:
- Subnational infrastructure companies
- National infrastructure companies
- Regional infrastructure companies
- Global infrastructure companies
The table below describes the TICCS® geo-economic classification.
Code and Name Definition Examples GE1 - Global infrastructure companies The relevant infrastructure is exposed to global economic factors, e.g., international airports, oil and gas pipelines, some ports, etc. Major transportation hubs, projects exposed to global commodity prices. GE2 - Regional infrastructure companies The relevant infrastructure is exposed to a group of national economies, e.g., energy transmission between two or more countries, airports serving regional routes. A regional regulator or legal framework may also exist such as the European Union. Medium-size container ports, transborder projects like transmission lines or certain road corridors. GE3 - National infrastructure companies The relevant infrastructure is exposed to the national economy, e.g., domestic airports and national electricity transmission assets, and is relevant to the national government or a national regulator. Large-scale road or telecommunicaton networks, companies regulated by a national-level entity. GE4 - Subnational infrastructure companies The relevant infrastructure serves the local economy, e.g., schools and hospitals, and has subsovereign public clients or counterparts. Municipal or other subsovereign-entity social infrastructure projects.
