Key Features

Significant features

The Fund’s investment universe is any entity listed on a global stock exchange whose primary business is the ownership and operation of infrastructure assets. The Fund’s primary investment objective is to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns over the medium to long term through investment in a diversified portfolio of high quality companies that meets the Investment Manager’s definition of infrastructure.

The Investment Manager will invest in companies that generate the dominant part of their earnings from the ownership of infrastructure assets. The Fund will comprise 70-100 investments. The weighting of securities in the Fund will be primarily determined on the basis of market capitalisation adjusted for the number of shares readily available in the market, except where the Investment Manager believes an alternate basis is appropriate. However, a number of constraints will be applied to ensure that the Fund is diversified by security, infrastructure sector and geography. The intention of the Investment Manager is that the foreign currency exposure of the Fund will be hedged.

The Fund will be rebalanced on a monthly basis, or on such other basis determined by the Investment Manager.
