Infrastructure Investing

Please refer to the glossary for explanations of the investment terms used throughout this website.

What is infrastructure?

Infrastructure broadly refers to assets associated with the provision of essential services for the safe and prosperous functioning of global society. These are physical assets on which we all rely every day – from the utilities that provide our power and water, to the toll roads and railways on which we travel.

These types of businesses typically enjoy the following characteristics:

  • Long-life assets governed by long-term contracts
  • Inflation-linked revenues
  • Stable and growing cashflows

The relatively predictable nature of these cashflows is suited to long-term investors who are looking for the potential of a reliable and growing income stream, with their capital value supported by physical assets.

Why infrastructure?

Infrastructure holds an important place in the fabric of modern society, serving as the backbone of the world economy. As such, we believe that the potentially stable and growing cashflows generated by the asset class have an equally important part to play in investors’ portfolios.

Everyday we’re unknowingly reliant on infrastructure. From getting up in the morning, checking your phone and taking a shower to watching the latest boxset at the end of the day.

The value of a fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
