About the Fund

This fund is invested in a handpicked portfolio of high quality companies.

Highlights and lowlights — October 2020

Your portfolios: Highlights and lowlights


The Property & Infrastructure Fund returned-0.1% in October, underperforming its benchmark which returned +0.4%.

Infratil (+9%) held an investor day focused on its Canberra Data Centres (CDC) and Vodafone New Zealand investments. CDC provided increased capacity guidance, reflecting ongoing acceleration in data usage.   On the flipside, Vodafone expects COVID-19 to negatively impact FY21 earnings by $60-75m, due to lower roaming and prepaid revenue.  During the month Infratil announced the acquisition of Qscan, a diagnostic imaging business in Australia.  It is early days but we like the fact the diagnostic imaging market is growing +5-7% and Qscan’s focus on higher-value services. 

Disappointingly, Union Pacific (-10%) COO and Precision Scheduled Railroading (PSR) disciple Jim Vena announced he is moving to an advisory role.  He has been at the railroad now for almost 2 years and sown the PSR seeds. The railroad remains committed to its 55% operating ratio target (operating costs divided by revenues) versus the current ratio of around 59%.  It is worth noting that competitor CSX has continued to make progress lowering its operating ratio primarily via PSR following the passing of the PSR king Hunter Harrison, despite concerns progress would stall.
