MFG Select Infrastructure

Investment Objective

The Frontier MFG Select Infrastructure Fund's goal, also referred to as its investment objective, is to seek attractive risk-adjusted returns over the medium- to long-term, while reducing the risk of permanent capital loss.

Principal Investment Strategy

The Fund’s subadviser, Magellan Asset Management Limited doing business as MFG Asset Management (“MFG Asset Management”) seeks to provide investors with exposure to the infrastructure sector and to deliver stable investment returns relative to other equity funds. 

The Fund will invest in a non-diversified portfolio of securities of infrastructure companies,  such as utilities, toll roads, airports, ports and communications companies, that MFG Asset Management has determined have an appropriate capital structure, are likely to generate reliable income streams and are likely to benefit from inflation protection.

The Fund will normally hold a limited number (typically 20 to 40) of companies that meet these criteria and typically with a market capitalization in excess of U.S. $500 million at the time of purchase.  The Fund will typically hold up to 20% of its assets in cash and cash equivalents.
