Core infrastructure assets are the backbone of developed economies and can provide defensive, regular income streams as well as capital growth.
The AMP Capital Core Infrastructure Fund offers individual investors the opportunity to invest in high-quality unlisted infrastructure assets that are usually only available to large institutional investors.
To control risk and provide investors with diversification and liquidity, the Fund takes an integrated approach to building a strategically blended portfolio of unlisted infrastructure assets and listed infrastructure securities in Australia and around the globe. The target asset allocation is a 50:50 blend of unlisted infrastructure assets and listed infrastructure securities plus cash.
The Fund provides diversified exposure to multiple sectors, regions and asset types including airports, water, gas, electricity and transport infrastructure.
The Fund offers strong total return (income and capital growth) potential. It has been built to have a low correlation with most other mainstream asset classes, such as equities and bonds. This means investors may benefit from diversification through access to investments with a return profile that differs from others asset classes.
“We look for companies that can deliver predictable cash-flows through any economic cycle.”
John Julian, Portfolio Manager
A fund built with these goals in mind
Invest in significant infrastructure assets sourced by AMP Capital
Assets such as Melbourne Airport (Aust), Angel Trains (UK) and Powerco (NZ) are among the largest and most significant infrastructure assets in their sectors in their respective countries. Ownership is largely restricted to large institutional investors.
Access the steady, predictable cash flows of infrastructure
The essential services nature of infrastructure assets means earnings are generally less volatile than equities.
Smoother return pathway when used as part of a diversified portfolio
Investment returns from infrastructure generally have a low correlation to other mainstream assets such as equities and bonds, delivering a smoother, less volatile return profile for investors seeking greater predictability.

The Fund's risk level is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns for the Fund over any 20 year period and is not a complete assessment of the risks of investing in the Fund. For instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may require to meet their objectives. Consequently, before choosing to invest or reinvest in the Fund, you should read the Fund's PDS and incorporated information and consider factors such as the likely investment return, the risks of investing and your investment time frame.
