AMP gives SMSFs access to infrastructure

AMP Capital has made infrastructure investing for SMSF trustees easier by adding its Global Listed Infrastructure Fund to its SMSF Suite.

“We have added the AMP Capital Global Listed Infrastructure Fund to the SMSF Suite because it can be difficult for SMSF investors to access the best opportunities in listed infrastructure on their own,” AMP Capital head of SMSF Tim Keegan said.

“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.”

The AMP Capital Global Listed Infrastructure Fund was launched in July 2010 and invests in listed companies involved in assets such as toll roads, airports, water utilities, and oil and gas pipelines in emerging and developed economies.

“We look for companies that deliver stable and predictable cash flows as this helps us deliver strong returns and downside protection to investors,” AMP Capital head of global listed infrastructure Tim 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.”

AMP Capital’s SMSF Suite was launched in May and is now comprised of three offerings: the investment manager’s Corporate Bond Fund, Wholesale Australian Property Fund and now the Global Listed Infrastructure Fund.

“Through the SMSF Suite, we’re able to bring our customers unique investment opportunities they may not have otherwise considered or been able to access,” Keegan said.

“We’re looking forward to expanding the SMSF Suite next year to bring our customers additional investment options in equities, property and infrastructure.”
