The Fisher Funds Property & Infrastructure Fund aims to achieve positive returns over the long term. We sometimes refer to this fund as the “backbone” fund because the companies within the portfolio own assets which are the backbone of society such as airports, railroads, power companies, industrial buildings and power companies. This fund is invested in a handpicked portfolio of high quality companies.
This type of asset is appealing as they typically generate predictable and recurring revenue streams through the investment cycle. This is because they provide essential products or services.

The Property & Infrastructure Fund returned -0.9% in June, ahead of its benchmark at -2.2%.
Diversified property owner and manager Stride Property (+13%) announced its fiscal 2020 result. Despite some rent relief due to COVID, its balanced portfolio and conservative level of gearing meant it was able to maintain its dividend. It continued to grow its Real Estate Investment Management (REIM) business +16% and this growth should continue with the formation of the Industre industrial property joint venture, which came into effect on 30 June.
Childcare landlord Arena REIT (-9%) raised A$75 million to provide capacity to make further investments. This was unexpected as the company was already conservatively geared and has not been overly impacted from COVID, with its centres remaining open as essential services and childcare operators well supported by government initiative. The company has a strong track record of investing wisely to deliver investor returns so we participated in the raising.
