Bendigo Chapter Member Lunch

Wednesday, 11 November 2015

During this seminar you will hear from two leading presenters, Justin Lannen from Maple-Brown Abbot and Rene Daquino from Ironbark.

Our two speakers will present on the topic of
“Defining ‘Infrastructure’ as an asset class for the defensive investor”.

Topic Synopsis
In markets with considerable volatility and inflation risk, investors globally are looking for defensive portfolio solutions. But they face a dilemma – will an expected defensive asset actually deliver defensive characteristics when required?

At the heart of defensive investing lies infrastructure assets – typically argued as an attractive solution for investors seeking inflation protection, reduced volatility (relative to broader equity markets) and portfolio diversification. However, due to broadening definitions, the experience of some Australian investors has not always reflected the marketing claims. Indeed, only in its purest form is infrastructure able to deliver the defensive qualities that investors are targeting.
