Infrastructure investing builds on a solid foundation

As a group, these growing industries have outperformed broad market indexes.

Funds in the Global Infrastructure Equity category invest in a market segment that is growing by leaps and bounds worldwide, offering investors potential strong performance and weak correlation to the major stock-market indexes.

As a group, infrastructure stocks have outperformed over the last 15 years. For example, the S&P Global Infrastructure Index has returned a cumulative 160% since 2001, well ahead of the S&P 500 which returned 139% for the same period, notes Sami Hazboun, the Montreal-based portfolio manager of Investors Global Infrastructure Class .

The same holds for the FTSE Global Infrastructure Index. It has achieved annual growth of 10%, compared with 7% for the MSCI World Index, notes Dominique Lessard, a portfolio manager at Desjardins Wealth Management in Montreal.
