Infrastructure is an asset class often seen by market participants as a diversification tool that can be used as a hedge to long-term liabilities by offering exposure to potentially stable, inflation-linked, low-beta returns.
The FTSE Infrastructure Index Series is designed to measure the performance of infrastructure and infrastructure-related listed equity securities worldwide. The series offers a variety of indexes including those that only cover companies involved in the FTSE Russell-defined “core” infrastructure activities as well as those that include companies involved in both core infrastructure and infrastructure-related activities. Versions with index weight caps placed at both the constituent-level and sector-level to ensure exposure remains diverse are available as well.
Other FTSE Russell infrastructure indexes include the FTSE Fixed Income Core Infrastructure Index Series and the FTSE Multi-Asset Core Infrastructure Index Series, providing investors with a comprehensive, cross-asset solution.
