Global listed infrastructure securities offer investors the opportunity to own the utilities and facilities that provide essential services and help drive economic growth.
Infrastructure assets are attractive to investors as they are often built or regulated in such a way that they face little or no competition. These strong monopolistic qualities provide the asset class with defensive characteristics and mean they are generally subject to less market volatility than other asset classes.
Global listed infrastructure companies can offer investors higher dividend or income payments than global equities and global bonds, as operating margins are often high and maintenance capital expenditure is low.
“Global listed infrastructure is a relatively young asset class with plenty of growth potential and strong return drivers.”
Giuseppe Corona, Head of Global Listed Infrastructure
