Alceda and CBRE Clarion Securities have announced plans to launch a vehicle focused on investing in global listed infrastructure securities.
“We believe infrastructure offers investors attractive risk-adjusted returns,” said Jeremy Anagnos, CIO of infrastructure at CBRE Clarion Securities, in a statement.
The fund will be structured in the form of a UCITS vehicle, which means the fund can be marketed within all countries in the European Union, on Alceda’s UCITS platform in Luxembourg and is expected to be available for investment in the coming weeks.
The fund underlines Alceda’s strategy to work with larger-scale asset managers and supports CBRE Clarion Securities’ aim of making its global listed infrastructure strategy available to institutional investors in Europe and Asia.
Investment in infrastructure is one of the world’s leading drivers of economic growth and a strategic priority for several countries, according to a statement from the firms, which notes listed infrastructure companies can offer attractive dividend yields and capital appreciation, and their shares tend to be more liquid than private market ventures and facilitate substantial diversification, both in terms of geographic scope and across industry subsectors.
