Redpoint Global Infrastructure Fund

Fund Description: The Fund invests in a well-diversified global portfolio of listed infrastructure securities and is substantially hedged to the Australian dollar.

Investment approach: Redpoint’s method of choosing and weighting listed infrastructure securities is different from the Benchmark’s. Redpoint believes it can capture the asset class 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 wider universe of companies than the Benchmark;
  • holds companies that are not in the Benchmark and excludes some companies that are; and
  • often holds companies at significantly different weights to the Benchmark.

Redpoint selects and weights companies according to two components: strategic and dynamic.

The strategic component reflects the wider universe and ensures the Fund is not concentrated in a small number of larger capitalisation companies.

The second stage is a dynamic component that involves an assessment of each company. Redpoint references a wide range of quantitative and qualitative data and information to analyse a company's:

  • dividend yield: higher dividend yields can help boost income from the Fund’s investments;
  • financial leverage: Redpoint limits exposure to excessive leverage; and
  • sustainability: Redpoint believes that managing the Fund's exposure to take into account certain labour standards and economic, environmental, social and corporate governance factors can enhance long term returns.
