classes. Underlying exposure through 25 – 30 securities to over 3,000 individual assets in over 30 sub-sectors.

 

Attractive income levels

Focus on securities with defensive characteristics, such as high quality counterparties and provision of essential services, to enhance risk-adjusted returns over the long term.

 

Inflation protection

nfrastructure assets often have income streams directly linked to inflation, protecting income returns in real terms.

UK focus

Over 80% of the securities will be GBP denominated and domiciled in the UK. Any non-UK exposure is expected to increase diversification and exposure to attractive sectors.

 

Where we invest

  • Infrastructure – Companies that own the physical assets that are vital to the UK’s economic development. They include toll roads, utility networks, logistic networks and railways.

  • Secured Lending Companies – Companies which specialise in providing debt finance, secured against real assets such as renewable energy and infrastructure investments.
  • Social Infrastructure Companies – Companies which own the real estate and infrastructure that social services operate from. Sectors that sit within social infrastructure include housing, healthcare and educational
    facilities.
  • Logistics – Modern, large-scale distribution warehouses that play an integral role in supporting many industries and underpinning economic output.
  • Digital Infrastructure – Companies that own the data centres, wireless tower or fibre networks that store or transmit the data that is becoming ever more deeply ingrained in our every day lives.

 

The investment case

Investment in bridges, roads, rail networks, hospitals, and the growing need for more sustainable, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind farms, means these sectors are the cornerstone of the UK’s economic and social welfare. This makes for an attractive investment opportunity. The assets are long term investments, with high barriers to entry, and underlying revenues are often underpinned by long term government-backed subsidies or other long term contracted payments.
