The Magellan Infrastructure strategy invests in global listed infrastructure securities.

Magellan believes that quality infrastructure assets have two key characteristics:

  1. The asset provides a service that is essential for the efficient functioning of a community; and
  2. The cash-flows generated by the asset are reliable and do not face external risks such as sovereign risk, competition, commodity price movements or technological obsolescence.

The Magellan Infrastructure strategy aims to provide consistent long-term absolute returns, which exceed the risk adjusted returns expected of the asset class.
