Infrastructure holds an important place in the fabric of modern society, serving as the backbone of the world economy. As the urgency to move towards a zero-carbon future has grown, we believe that the potentially reliable and growing cashflows infrastructure could generate have an equally important part to play in investors’ portfolios.
Everyday we’re unknowingly reliant on infrastructure. Many of our daily routines are backed by the presence of a physical infrastructure network whose services enable the modern world to run smoothly. Often without knowing it, we are touching them several times a day.
The M&G Global Listed Infrastructure Fund aims to hold 40-50 companies from all over the world paying dividends that we believe have the potential to increase sustainably over the long term. We invest beyond traditional infrastructure like utilities and transport, diversifying into companies in other areas, such as communication and health infrastructure, to target the best opportunities for our investors.
