All investments carry risk. Different investments carry different levels of risk, depending on the investment strategy and the underlying assets. Generally, the higher the potential return of an investment, the greater the risk. The risks of investing in this fund include:

  • Investment risk: The fund has exposure to share markets. The risk of an investment in the fund is higher than an investment in a typical bank account or fixed income investment. Amounts distributed to unitholders may fluctuate, as may the fund’s unit price. The unit price may vary by material amounts, even over short periods of time, including during the period between a redemption request being made and the time the redemption unit price is calculated.
  • Infrastructure sector risk: The fund aims to provide exposure to the global infrastructure sector by investing in infrastructure related securities. The performance of these investments will be correlated to the global infrastructure sector in general, and may be affected by factors such as the availability and cost of finance, the level of usage of infrastructure, the level of supply of infrastructure projects, prevailing interest rates, government regulations as well as general market sentiment towards the sector as a whole.
  • Market risk: Share markets can be volatile, and have the potential to fall by large amounts over short periods of time. The investments of the fund are likely to have a broad correlation with share markets in general, and hence poor performance or losses in domestic and/or global share markets are likely to impact negatively on the overall performance of the fund.

For a full description of the risks of investing in the fund, you should read the Product Disclosure Statement before deciding to invest.
