Investment philosophy

To prudently invest in outstanding infrastructure and utilities companies at attractive prices that exhibit highly predictable cashflows.

The infrastructure asset class, when appropriately defined, is characterised by monopoly-like assets that face reliable demand and enjoy predictable cashflows. As a result, Magellan has established proprietary classification criteria to appropriately categorise securities as investment grade infrastructure, and thus eligible for inclusion in its portfolios or otherwise. Potential investments that meet these criteria are expected to achieve strong underlying financial performance over medium- to long-term timeframes, which should translate into reliable, inflation-linked investment returns.

Magellan believes that an appropriately structured portfolio of 20 to 40 investments can provide sufficient diversification to ensure that investors are not overly correlated to any single company, industry-specific or macroeconomic risk.

Portfolio construction

The Magellan Infrastructure Fund (Unhedged)’s investment process involves three key stages:

Determining the investment universe; Only securities that meet Magellan’s proprietary infrastructure classification criteria are included in the Magellan Infrastructure Fund’s investable universe. In order for a security to meet this definition, its underlying business must provide a service that is essential to the efficient functioning of a community, while generating cash flows that are not subject to external risks such as commodity prices. Furthermore, Magellan evaluates other criteria, such as gearing levels, sovereign risk, regulatory risk and reporting transparency, which, if failed, will result in exclusion from the investment universe. Magellan believes that by excluding businesses that fail to meet these criteria, the universe consists purely of companies that enjoy reliable demand and generate predictable cash flows.

Assessing each potential investment's quality and intrinsic value; Each security in the investment universe is subjected to detailed analysis. This analysis includes evaluations of a company’s external environment, its business’s specific issues, its historical financial performance and its valuation.

Allocating capital to the securities within the investment universe in an appropriate manner; Portfolio construction is driven by the results of qualitative stock analysis, valuation, formal risk controls and factor risk management. The portfolio construction process focuses on long-term value rather than index-relative positioning.


The resulting portfolio provides investors with exposure to securities that meet Magellan’s infrastructure classification criteria, while giving consideration to each security’s quality and its price relative its assessed intrinsic value.
