We see potential for infrastructure to deliver attractive returns for several reasons.
First, the transition to a digitized, decarbonized economy is likely to keep infrastructure in focus. Second, the transition to clean, renewable energy will potentially be a significant driver of infrastructure returns. Third, listed infrastructure has historically offered equity-like returns but with lower volatility than broad equity markets.

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.
