Maple-Brown Abbott Global Listed Infrastructure Fund - Hedged

The Fund gains exposure to global listed infrastructure securities by purchasing units in the Maple-Brown Abbott Global Listed Infrastructure Fund (GLIF). The GLIF is an actively managed, high conviction fund that invests in global listed infrastructure equities with a focus on regulated, contracted and concession assets or networks that provide essential services. We believe that the benefits of investing in infrastructure overall is its ability to provide higher yield, inflation protection and portfolio diversification benefits to investors. Our Fund seeks to capture these attractive features but at a lower level of risk. The GLIF typically holds between 25–35 stocks. We will substantially hedge the fund’s currency exposure back to Australian dollars.

Investment objective

The Fund aims to outperform an accumulation index, maintained daily by us, comprised of the OECD Total Inflation Index plus 5.5% per annum over rolling 5 year periods.

Fees & costs

Management costs % p.a.Net transactional and operational costs % p.a*Buy/Sell spread % / 0.15

*Transactional and operational costs vary year to year and represent the estimated costs from the fund’s investing activities. These are reflected in the unit price an impact the performance of the fund. These costs include brokerage, settlement costs, clearing costs, stamp duty and other taxes on an investment transaction. It also includes the difference between the price paid for purchasing securities and the price that would be payable if selling securities (i.e. bid/ask spread). These costs are net of the buy-sell spread recovery which is the amount charged to investors for applications and withdrawals. The transactional and operational costs are generally calculated each year based on the estimated costs incurred during the prior financial year ended 30 June, expressed as a percentage of the average fund net asset value, however the transactional and operational costs will also be recalculated when there is a significant change in net transactional and operational costs.
