Yarra Australian Real Assets Securities Fund

The Yarra Australian Real Assets Securities Fund invests primarily in listed Australian infrastructure, utilities and REIT securities.

Real assets, real opportunities

The Yarra Real Assets Securities Fund provides investors with the attractive qualities of resilient earnings built on long-life assets and strong market positions.

Through our active and independent approach to stock selection, the Fund aims to outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Custom Infrastructure, Utilities and A-REITs Index over rolling three-year periods.

The Fund invests in 15 – 25 securities, utilising a style-neutral, long-term approach where stocks are selected based on active insights from the team’s rigorous proprietary research.

High earnings and dividend certainty

Real assets generally provide essential or demand-inelastic services to businesses and consumers, underpinning the potential for reliable and predictable cash earnings and dividends.

Domestic inflation protection

Real assets provide purchasing power protection for long-term Australian investors through concessions and lease contracts linked to CPI.

Diversification benefits

Investing across the real asset spectrum (infrastructure, utilities, and A-REITs) widens the investment universe, preserves low-risk characteristics and enhances opportunities compared to standalone infrastructure or REIT strategies.
