AMP Capital has added its global listed infrastructure fund to its SMSF suite, according to a recent statement.
The SMSF Suite, an initiative of AMP Capital, was launched in May in an attempt to put selected managed funds on the radar of SMSF trustees.
AMP Capital’s head of SMSF, Tim Keegan, said the fund was added to the SMSF Suite because he believes it can be difficult for SMSF investors to access opportunities in listed infrastructure.
“Listed infrastructure is a relatively new asset class, which presents a lot of good growth opportunities, particularly given our fund looks internationally for the best investments.”
AMP Capital’s head of global listed infrastructure Tim Humphreys said the fund only invests in “core and pure” listed infrastructure assets such as water utilities, oil and gas pipelines, electricity transmission and distribution and transportation infrastructure such as airports, toll roads and seaports.
“We look for companies that deliver stable and predictable cash flows as this helps us deliver strong returns and downside protection to investors,” Mr Humphreys said.
“SMSF investors can benefit from the diversification global listed infrastructure offers their portfolios while its high dividend yield will help them meet their income goals. It is also a low-risk way to access the growth potential of global equities.”
