Multi-Manager Global Listed Infrastructure
NAV AS OF 09/29/23
The Multi-Manager Global Listed Infrastructure Fund may be a good choice for those long-term investors seeking exposure to infrastructure companies, global diversification of their portfolio, a quarterly dividend and for a Fund which may help lower a portfolio's overall long-term volatility when included as a part of a diversified portfolio. Our approach blends specialist managers from a broad universe of external global managers into a single fund. Each Sub-Adviser acts independently from the others and utilizes its own distinct investment style in selecting securities while seeking total return through both long-term current income and capital appreciation.
The Fund seeks total return through both income and capital appreciation.
- Invest at least 80% of net assets in securities of infrastructure companies listed on a domestic or foreign exchange, normally investing at least 40% (and up to 100%) in infrastructure companies tied to foreign countries, including emerging and frontier markets.
- Select complementary managers from a broad universe of investment managers.
- Blend managers into a single fund in an effort to provide an attractive combination of risk/return.
If you're a long-term investor looking to diversify your investments by pursuing the income and growth potential of globally listed infrastructure securities, then this Fund may be right for you. It is intended for investors who are aware that foreign markets may involve additional risks, such as social and political instability, reduced market liquidity and currency volatility.
