Macquarie Emerging Markets Infrastructure Income Fund

 

The Fund will invest in listed emerging markets infrastructure securities issued by entities that own, operate or provide infrastructure assets or services. These are emerging market domiciled entities that earn a substantial amount of their revenue or profits from owning, operating or providing infrastructure assets or services.

The Fund’s investment objectives are to generate:

A. Quarterly distributions for holders of units (“Unitholders”) currently targeted to be $0.15 per unit ($0.60 per annum representing an annual cash distribution of 5.0% based on the $12.00 per Combined Unit issue price); and
B. Total return for Unitholders, consisting of dividend income and capital appreciation.

On June 10, 2013 the fund announced an increase in its quarterly distribution from $0.15 per unit to $0.17 per unit. This represents a 13% increase in its quarterly distribution.

Fund highlights:

  • Exposure to the rapidly growing emerging markets infrastructure sector
  • Leading portfolio manager in the listed infrastructure sector
  • Income-oriented portfolio of large cap listed infrastructure securities in emerging markets
  • Attractive quarterly distributions currently targeted at 5.7% per annum
