Infrastructure is investing in all the facilities that help a government or community to run. This can be roads, utilities (such as power, water or gas), transport (like airports, sea ports or toll roads) or public buildings (schools, libraries). Investment can either be directly into single assets or into externally-managed infrastructure funds.
Infrastructure investments can have both defensive and/or growth characteristics. That’s because these investments aim to achieve returns through both income and potential capital gain when the assets are sold.
