Maple-Brown Abbott Global Listed Infrastructure Fund

The Fund is actively managed and is invested in global listed infrastructure securities across regulated, contracted and concession assets that provide essential services, with a focus on sustainability and ESG factors. Generally, the securities in the portfolio have a market capitalisation greater than US$500 million.

We consider potential investments from a strictly selected infrastructure Focus List of around 110 companies across more than 20 countries based on a tight definition of infrastructure. Stocks on the Focus List are those the team believes provide the strongest combination of inflation protection and low volatility. 

The team conducts fundamental research, including meeting with the companies and regulators and building financial models on companies. The team looks for companies that have good governance, as well as perform well on environmental matters. This bottom-up research is combined with a top-down approach to managing macroeconomic risks.

We take a high conviction approach to ensure the strongest stock views are included in the portfolio. As a result, the portfolio is expected to have 25–35 global investments, diversified by country and sector.

Investment objective

The Fund aims to outperform an accumulation index, maintained daily by us, comprised of the OECD Total Inflation Index plus 5.5% per annum, after fees, over a five-year period.
