Key Reasons to Invest

  • QIF seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation and a high level of income by investing in global equity securities of companies related to the infrastructure industry.
  • AGFiQ’s approach of finding the right mix of upside capture and downside protection can potentially reduce volatility and lead to long-term outperformance relative to an index.
  • Provides potential diversification benefits to a portfolio as infrastructure has historically exhibited lower correlation with traditional assets classes, including equities and fixed income.

Investment Approach

Utilizes a proprietary, multi-factor, quantitative investment process to create opportunities to provide long-term capital appreciation with reduced volatility and a high level of income, over a full market cycle, by investing primarily in global equity securities in the infrastructure industry.
