Abstract

Infrastructure is an investment category often seen by investors as a diversification tool that can provide a hedge to long-term liabilities by offering exposure to potentially stable returns and steady income. FTSE Russell defines core infrastructure companies as those that own, manage or operate structures or networks used for the processing or moving goods, services, information and data, people, energy and necessities from one location to another.

Infrastructure assets have shown the ability to generate a steady income stream—an increasingly valuable feature in an environment dominated by low interest rates. In addition to higher dividend yields, listed infrastructure investments have historically offered higher risk-adjusted return and a more resilient income profile during downturns. In this paper, we seek to substantiate these infrastructure investment theses in practice.
