More stable returns
Infrastructure companies often operate in highly regulated monopolies that provide essential services to the community. Utilisation of their products and services tends to be resilient to increases in price and economic downturns. This means revenue streams tend to be more stable than the broader equities market.
Diversification benefits
Infrastructure assets have different characteristics to mainstream asset classes. Therefore, the Fund can help diversify risk and returns in an investment portfolio that’s largely made up of mainstream assets.
Access to a broader universe
The Fund typically invests in 100-120 listed infrastructure companies from right across the globe, which is more than most other funds in this asset class. This approach gives Redpoint a broader universe to seek opportunities and importantly helps to reduce risk by increasing asset, sector and geographic diversification in the portfolio.
Better protection from inflation and currency fluctuations
The usage rates charged by infrastructure companies for their products and services are often determined by regulators, governments or written into long-term contracts. These contracts are typically linked to inflation which means rates can be adjusted to allow for increases in the cost of living. The Fund is also substantially hedged to Australian dollars which helps reduce the impact of currency fluctuations on the Fund’s returns.
Better value
The Fund’s fees are lower than most actively managed global infrastructure funds. This is due to the quantitative approach Redpoint uses to identify infrastructure assets and its efficient processes for making and implementing portfolio construction decisions.

Climate change, volatility and impacts on global infrastructure


30 May 2016 - Redpoint Global Infrastructure Portfolio Manager Alex Stephen discusses the potential impacts that volatility and climate change will have on Infrastructure companies and how Redpoint factor this in when selecting stocks.

Diversification through global infrastructure


21 Jul 2015 - Redpoint Investment Management, Senior Portfolio Manager, Alex Stephen outlines how diversified investing in global infrastructure has the potential to generate consistent returns.

Investment return objective
The Fund aims to deliver a return (after fees) that exceeds the Benchmark over rolling 5 year periods.
Investment approach
Redpoint believes that sound investment insights, robust risk management and implementation excellence allows them to capture returns available more effectively from the wide range of investment opportunities around the world. To meet the investment return objective, Redpoint considers investments from a broader universe than the Benchmark and often holds companies at significantly different weights.
Redpoint selects and weights companies according to two components. The first of these ensures the Fund reflects the wider universe and ensures the Fund is not concentrated in a small number of larger capitalisation companies. The second stage involves an assessment of the quality, value and risk of each company. The team utilise a wide range of data and information to analyse companies such as their dividend yield, financial leverage and sustainability.
Investment process
The Fund aims to take a more holistic view of the asset class to achieve the objective of capturing the diversifying characteristics of infrastructure more consistently, efficiently and effectively.
Start with the right universe: methodically identify infrastructure companies that best meets the Fund’s objectives
Reduce risk: improve geographic diversification and reduce stock concentration risk
Improve return: introduce stock specific, quality criteria to enhance return
Outcome: a highly diversified portfolio of listed infrastructure assets that focuses on better quality companies with more sustainable income.
