Fund Objectives

The Fund's objective is to maximize long-term total return by investing in a diversified portfolio of companies that own, develop, maintain or are involved in the global infrastructure sector. Infrastructure assets provide a wide variety of essential services, such as electricity, water and transportation. High barriers to entry and economies of scale often provide owners and operators with very attractive returns and a natural hedge against inflation. Investing in global infrastructure securities allows unitholders to own companies with visible and stable cash flows, while providing geographic diversification, transparency and liquidity.
