Northern Trust launches global infrastructure fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Northern Trust has launched the Northern Multi-Manager Global Listed Infrastructure Fund for investors looking at strategies to provide dividend yields while aiming to provide downside protection.



“Infrastructure – including airports, ports, toll roads and similar assets – has unique and attractive characteristics as an investment,” says Chris Vella, chief investment officer for Northern Trust multi-manager investments. “We see this as a space that has the potential to provide relatively stable cash flows, attractive yields, inflation protection and downside protection. We also like that the companies this fund will invest in often have limited competition due to the high barriers of entry into the markets they serve.”

Northern’s Multi-Manager Global Listed Infrastructure Fund seeks total return through both income and capital appreciation. Under its investment strategy, at least 80 per cent of assets will be invested in securities of infrastructure companies listed on a domestic or foreign exchange. Infrastructure firms include energy, transportation, communication and utility companies. This is a global fund, and normally the fund will invest at least 40 per cent in infrastructure companies tied to foreign countries, including emerging markets and frontier markets.

The fund’s total net operating expense ratio is one per cent, and has a redemption fee of two per cent on assets sold or exchanged within 30 days of purchase. The minimum investment is USD2,500. The fund takes a multi-manager approach, with assets allocated to multiple outside sub-advisers using distinctive investment styles. The Northern Trust Company of Connecticut (NTCC) will conduct manager research, selection, optimisation and oversight. Investment sub-advisers are Brookfield Investment Management and Macquarie Capital Investment Management.
