Benefits of investing in the Magellan Infrastructure Fund (Currency Hedged)
Investing in the Fund offers investors a range of benefits, including:
An investment in the Fund may suit you if you are seeking a long-term investment exposure to listed international infrastructure equities.
The Investment Manager aims to invest in companies that generate the dominant part of their earnings from the ownership of infrastructure assets. The Investment Manager endeavours to acquire these companies at discounts to their assessed intrinsic value.
The Fund’s portfolio will comprise 20 to 40 investments. The Investment Manager believes such a portfolio will achieve sufficient diversification to ensure the Fund is not overly correlated to a single company, or to macroeconomic risks.
It is the Investment Manager’s intention to substantially hedge the capital component of the foreign currency exposure of the Fund arising from investments in overseas markets back to Australian Dollars
The Magellan Infrastructure Fund (Currency Hedged) has been designed to provide investors with efficient access to the infrastructure asset class, while protecting capital in adverse markets.
The infrastructure asset class, when appropriately defined, is characterised by monopoly-like assets that face reliable demand and enjoy predictable cashflows. As a result, Magellan has established proprietary classification criteria to appropriately categorise securities as investment grade infrastructure, and thus eligible for inclusion in its portfolios or otherwise. Potential investments that meet these criteria are expected to achieve strong underlying financial performance over medium- to long-term timeframes, which should translate into reliable, inflation-linked investment returns.
Magellan believes that an appropriately structured portfolio of 20 to 40 investments can provide sufficient diversification to ensure that investors are not overly correlated to any single company, industry-specific or macroeconomic risk.
How we invest your money
The Fund's investment process integrates three key stages:
The resulting portfolio provides investors with exposure to securities that meet Magellan's infrastructure classification criteria, while giving consideration to each security's quality and its price relative its assessed intrinsic value.
The Fund primarily invests in the securities of companies listed on stock exchanges around the world, but will also have some exposure to cash & cash equivalents. The Fund can use foreign exchange contracts to facilitate settlement of stock purchases and to mitigate currency risk on specific investments within the portfolio. It is our intention to substantially hedge the capital component of the foreign currency exposure of the Fund arising from investments in overseas markets back to Australian Dollars.
