Investing in infrastructure: an income alternative
What is an infrastructure investment and what role can it play in your portfolio? John Julian from AMP Capital joins Peter Switzer to provide an overview of the infrastructure landscape and highlight some of the risks investors need to be aware of. He will also discuss how infrastructure has performed and how it can be accessed by retail investors.
