Investment philosophy

The Magellan Infrastructure Fund (Unhedged) has been designed to provide investors with efficient access to the infrastructure asset class, while reducing the risk of permanent capital loss.

The infrastructure asset class, when appropriately defined, is characterised by monopoly-like assets that face reliable demand and enjoy predictable cashflows. As a result, Magellan has established proprietary classification criteria to appropriately categorise securities as investment grade infrastructure, and thus eligible for inclusion in its portfolios or otherwise. Potential investments that meet these criteria are expected to achieve strong underlying financial performance over medium- to long-term timeframes, which should translate into reliable, inflation-linked investment returns.

Magellan believes that an appropriately structured portfolio of 20 to 40 investments can provide sufficient diversification to ensure that investors are not overly correlated to any single company, industry-specific or macroeconomic risk.

Portfolio construction

The Magellan Infrastructure Fund (Unhedged)’s investment process involves three key stages:

Determining the investment universe; Only securities that meet Magellan’s proprietary infrastructure classification criteria are included in the Magellan Infrastructure Fund’s investable universe. In order for a security to meet this definition, its underlying business must provide a service that is essential to the efficient functioning of a community, while generating cash flows that are not subject to external risks such as commodity prices. Furthermore, Magellan evaluates other criteria, such as gearing levels, sovereign risk, regulatory risk and reporting transparency, which, if failed, will result in exclusion from the investment universe. Magellan believes that by excluding businesses that fail to meet these criteria, the universe consists purely of companies that enjoy reliable demand and generate predictable cash flows.

Assessing each potential investment's quality and intrinsic value; Each security in the investment universe is subjected to detailed analysis. This analysis includes evaluations of a company’s external environment, its business’s specific issues, its historical financial performance and its valuation.

Allocating capital to the securities within the investment universe in an appropriate manner; Portfolio construction is driven by the results of qualitative stock analysis, valuation, formal risk controls and factor risk management. The portfolio construction process focuses on long-term value rather than index-relative positioning.


The resulting portfolio provides investors with exposure to securities that meet Magellan’s infrastructure classification criteria, while giving consideration to each security’s quality and its price relative its assessed intrinsic value.

Continuous Disclosure

24 September 2020 - Distribution Policy Update

On 24 September Magellan announced a distribution policy update for the funds for which it acts a responsible entity (‘Fund’ or ‘Funds’).

For each Fund, Magellan intends to target a specific cash distribution yield (“Target Cash Distribution”) and pay distributions semi-annually. Each Fund’s Target Cash Distribution per unit for each semi-annual period will be based on the average of the month-end net asset values per unit applicable to a Fund, or a Fund’s unit class, over a two year rolling period and will be announced at the beginning of each semi-annual distribution period.

This update harmonises the distribution policies across Magellan’s Funds and, Magellan believes, provides investors with greater certainty on the amount of upcoming cash distributions.

For further information and for the Target Cash Distribution per annum for each Fund, please click here.


A minimum initial investment of $10,000 and minimum subsequent investment of $5,000 applies to each of Magellan’s unlisted funds (except for Magellan High Conviction Class B which is a minimum initial investment of $100,000 and a minimum subsequent investment of $10,000).

If you have chosen to receive communication via email, you will receive confirmation of your investment within 3 business days from when our unit registry (Mainstream Fund Services) has received your correctly completed Application Form (or notice of additional investment) and cleared application monies. Please note that if you choose to invest by cheque or request us to process a direct debit, it may take up to two business days (in the case of a cheque) and three business days (in the case of a direct debit) for your application monies to clear. If you have chosen to receive communication via mail, please allow for postage time on top of the 3 business days from receipt of your correctly completed Application Form (or notice of additional investment) and cleared application monies

During distribution periods (at the start of July and the start of January for some funds) receipt of your confirmation statement may be delayed by 10-15 business days.
