This product dedicates its assets to an index which tracks the performance of the global infrastructure sector. Infrastructure makes for a unique but often risky investment, as any kind of economic downturn will see new project put on hold until the economy begins to prosper again. Nevertheless, with roads, bridges, and other transportation means constantly need updating or built, an investment in infrastructure could be a great long term play as both developed and emerging markets will need to upgrade their systems immensely in the coming years. In particular, IGF gives investors global exposure to infrastructure companies all across the world with a focus on European markets. Investors should note that this fund offers little emerging market exposure, meaning that it will be more stable, but may offer less growth opportunity than a fund that allocates more of its funds to emerging market securities. For those investors, there are a number of country specific infrastructure products which may be more suitable for their investment goals.
