The asset class
Infrastructure companies own long-lived assets, such as power plants, transportation networks and communications systems. We see attractive long-term growth opportunities in this market, given the growing need for infrastructure spending, the historical underinvestment in infrastructure and the increasing privatization of what have traditionally been government-owned assets.

Risks of Investing in Global Infrastructure Securities
Investments in global infrastructure securities will likely be more susceptible to adverse economic or regulatory occurrences affecting global infrastructure companies than an investment that is not primarily invested in global infrastructure companies. Infrastructure issuers may be subject to regulation by various governmental authorities and may also be affected by governmental regulation of rates charged to customers, operational or other mishaps, tariffs, and changes in tax laws, regulatory policies, and accounting standards. Foreign securities involve special risks, including currency fluctuation and lower liquidity. Some global securities may represent small and medium-sized companies, which may be more susceptible to price volatility than larger companies.
