our future

We're investing in the next generation of infrastructure that we
believe will underpin the future technology that could
revolutionize our world.

Why invest in listed infrastructure?

  • Infrastructure is the backbone of the global economy and keeps the world running
  • The asset class is key to solving many of the world’s most important and urgent issues, including climate change and energy security
  • Investing in critical physical infrastructure assets offers the potential for reliable and growing income – a potential source of inflation protection
  • Powerful long-term trends, such as renewable energy, digital connectivity and demographics, represent potential sources of long-term growth

Why now?

  • We believe listed infrastructure has the potential to provide reliable and sustainability focused long-term growth
  • Companies are paying increasing attention to ESG credentials in their efforts to become better businesses, both from a financial perspective as well as looking to ensure sustainability
  • Fiscal expansion in the wake of COVID-19, including higher spending on infrastructure, may provide a favourable backdrop for the asset class

Investing aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs*)

Our diversified approach invests in three distinct infrastructure categories: Economic, Social and Evolving. Each category can help contribute to the promotion of different Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

*While we support the UN SDGs, we are not associated with the UN and our funds are not endorsed by them.

“Infrastructure, in particular, underpins all of the SDGs. It plays a critical role in society because it can influence development far into the future –both positively and negatively. This is why it is vital to understand the influence that infrastructure systems have on the SDGs.”
