Infrastructure

At the heart of all our infrastructure investments are two core principles:

We buy real assets. We either purchase assets directly, or we buy shares in companies which directly own and operate infrastructure assets. In this way all our investments are asset-backed.
We seek returns that are stable and predictable, with long-term contracts defining visible revenues and preferably index-linkage.

By strictly observing these two simple principles, we aim to offer our investors:

Capital preservation over both short and long investment periods.
Index-linked yields – uncorrelated with the performance of other investment classes, where possible.

Where possible we prefer to hold assets to maturity, optimising their management and efficiency to secure and maximise yield.
