The proportion of the elderly population is increasing every year, the phe-nomenon of China’s aging population has been increasing concern of the commu-nity. How to raise the elderly has become an important problem. Pension funds can protect the elderly, but ensuring the value of pension funds become the most im-portant problem. The key to ensure the value of pension funds is to create new in-vestment instrument.The investment instruments for pension funds in foreign countries are more than those in China, such as:deposit, equity, bonds, alternative instrument includ-ing infrastructure and so on. Infrastructure has attracted pension funds manager’s attention, because there are so many characteristics in infrastructure that can match with pension funds. Firstly, the time span for the construction of infrastructure is always long and investment scale of infrastructure is large. Pension fund can pro-vide stable long-term cash flow for infrastructure construction. Secondly, infrastructure can generate long-term and stable cash flow. Thirdly, infrastructure can prevent inflation, so it is for pension fund to maintain and increase their value. Finally, the correlation between infrastructure and other assets is very low so that pension fund can disperse portfolio risk.Infrastructure construction become one of the important driving force for chi-na’s economic growth and have capacity to increase people welfare. The demand of infrastructure is very huge but supply is inadequate. We can find the fact that Chinese pension funds look for investing instruments and that infrastructure seeks financing source can well match. There are many way for pension fund investing infrastructure. This paper talk about pension funds investment in infrastructure bonds and introduce cases about performance of the United State and Chile. In the end, it explores ways for China pension funds to invest infrastructure bonds.This paper consists six chapters: The first chapter is the introduction, it explains background and significance of the paper and also introduces ideas, methods, main content and innovation.The second chapter is the literature review.

It gives detailed concept, category, role and characteristics about in-frastructure and proves that infrastructure can generate long-term construction span and stable cash flow。At the time, infrastructure have low correlations with other assets classes。In Chapter4, we will introduce the case about America’s pension funds in-vestment in infrastructure bonds.
