A monthly review and outlook of the global listed infrastructure sector.

Key highlights - as at November 2016 


  • A challenging month for Listed Infrastructure as political change and a sharp rise in bond yields dampened returns. These two key risks for the sector are now better reflected in valuations, providing an attractive entry point for long-term investors.
  • In SGD terms, The First State Listed Infrastructure (the “Fund”) was relatively well positioned and outperformed by 240 basis points, gained 0.9% compared to a benchmark return of -1.5%.
  • US freight rail and energy pipelines increased on the prospect of a more supportive legislative / regulatory environment and corporate tax cuts. Rising bond yields weighed on mobile towers and utilities. A weaker yen drove Japanese infrastructure stocks higher while the UK and Latin America underperformed.
