Geelong Chapter Lunch Seminar

Monday 1 August 2016, 12:15pm – 2:00pm

New Venue – Empire Grill

The FPA Geelong Chapter Committee invites you to a lunchtime seminar on Monday 1 August, to hear from guest speaker Justin Lannen, Portfolio Manager & Investment Analyst – Global Listed Infrastructure.

At a time of considerable market volatility and uncertainty; investors everywhere are searching for defensive investment solutions. At the heart of defensive investing lies infrastructure assets; an attractive solution offering inflation protection, reduced volatility (relative to broader equity markets) and portfolio diversification. But history has shown that infrastructure assets have demonstrated considerable variances in defensiveness, both in recent years, and most notably during the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). So, you may ask us – why?

In this session, you will hear Justin explain the importance of adopting a tighter definition of infrastructure investing to deliver the defensive attributes that investors are targeting. Justin will demonstrate how the Maple-Brown Abbott Global Listed Infrastructure team view the investable universe through a ‘pure’ and focused lens. You will also hear him run through stock examples of the team’s process in action, along with a short summary of market conditions we are troubleshooting for.

A two course sit down lunch will be provided.
