Thanks for attending the webinar. Don't forget, the best five questions on this Community blog will win two sets of tickets to the upcoming ASX investor day.

 

Here is a question from one of the attendees:

 

Does the Core Infrastructure Fund invest directly in assets or in the shares in the companies providing infrastructure (which are subject to sharemarket volatility)?

CIF invests both directly in unlisted assets and also in the shares of listed infrastructure companies. The combination of unlisted infrastructure assets and the listed securities has resulted in a very low level of volatility compared to the broader share market.

Are investments in the form of a trust, for which an annual tax statement is provided after the end of the year?

Yes, the core infrastructure fund is an Australian registered managed investment scheme and an annual tax statement is provided at the end of each tax year. In addition, quarterly statements are provided following the payment of income distributions.

@rollingom Thank you for your quetsion.

 

The management fees for the direct class of units are 1.5% per annum and in addition there is a performance fee where the fund outperforms its targets. All returns quoted are net of all fees and expenses. Detailed information can be obtained from our website: http://www.ampcapital.com.au/smsf-suite/products/core-infrastructure-fund

Are the cash flows from the fund's investments predominantly fixed or do they have periodical increases?

It depends on the type of asset. Many types of infrastructure asset revenues are linked to inflation meaning that cash flows increase with inflation over time. Other types of assets such as regulated utilities are subject to periodical regulatory reviews which determine the prices they are able to charge their customers in the next regulatory period.
