What are Infrastructure Investments?

Infrastructure assets represent a broad mix of businesses that provide essential services to society. They are vital to economic development and as a result, benefit from relatively inelastic demand. Infrastructure companies often have sustainable long-term cash flows, inflation-linked revenues and are protected by high barriers to entry.


What are Timber Investments?

Listed timber investments include forest products companies, timber REITs, paper products companies or paper packaging companies that are engaged in the ownership, management or upstream supply chain of forests and timberlands. In timberland investments, returns are generated either from tree farming or from managing natural forests.

Tree Farms – Artificially established forests which are intensively managed for wood production. They are characterized as capital, management and technology intensive.

Managed Forests – Natural forests that have been managed less intensively, or selectively, over a long period of time. Management costs per acre are minimal, natural regeneration is relied on and long-term in-growth is the major source of return.


What are Listed Agriculture Investments?

The listed agriculture sector includes companies involved in the production, processing, transporting, trading and marketing of soft commodities such as grains, meat, fish and forestry products, as well as those that supply products and services (including seeds, fertilizers, crop nutrients, agricultural equipment and water) to the agricultural industry.
