Listed Infrastructure Fund

A Listed Infrastructure Fund invests solely in infrastructure companies that are traded on a public stock exchange. Listed infrastructure shares some of the characteristics of unlisted infrastructure, but due to it being listed is more liquid; allowing greater ease of buying and selling. Global listed infrastructure funds will generally benchmark against one of three indexes: the UBS Global Infrastructure (or the 50/50 Infrastructure and Utilities) Index, Standard & Poor's Global Infrastructure Index, or the Dow Jones Brookfield Global Infrastructure Index. Global listed infrastructure has been increasingly touted as a new asset class by consultants such as Mercer and Russell, and by fund managers such as Cohen & Steers, Brookfield,and others.
