Why Listed Infrastructure?

Why Listed Infrastructure?

With interest in infrastructure investing exploding, RARE co-founder Nick Langley makes the case for investors to favor listed securities.

"Listed securities enjoy the benefits of the infrastructure asset class – that’s long-term stable cash flows, lower correlations with other asset classes, income and inflation protection.
However, these securities also give us the benefits of the listed markets, such as liquidity and lower fees. Investing through the listed markets also provides us with the flexibility to take advantage of market movements and invest where we see value."
