Infrastructure is an asset class often seen by market participants as a diversification tool that can be used as a hedge to long-term liabilities by offering exposure to potentially stable, inflation-linked returns.
The FTSE Infrastructure Index Series is designed to measure the performance of infrastructure and infrastructure-related listed equity securities worldwide. The series offers a variety of indices including those that only cover companies involved in the FTSE Russell-defined “core” infrastructure activities as well as those that include companies involved in both core infrastructure and infrastructure-related activities. Versions with index weight caps placed at both the constituent-level and sector-level to ensure exposure remains diverse are available as well.
- FTSE Infrastructure Indices include companies that derive a minimum of 20% of their revenue from either the core infrastructure activities or the infrastructure-related activities, and the weight of infrastructure-related securities are adjusted down to 10% of their investable market cap.
- FTSE Infrastructure Opportunities Indices include companies that derive a minimum of 20% of their revenue from either the core infrastructure activities or the infrastructure-related activities.
- FTSE Core Infrastructure Indices include companies that derive a minimum of 65% of their revenue from core infrastructure activities. Companies with revenue only attributable to infrastructure-related activities are not eligible for the indices.
- FTSE Core Infrastructure 50/50 Indices and the FTSE Core Infrastructure Capped Indices employ capping methodology to the parent FTSE Core Infrastructure Indices to ensure exposure to core infrastructure remains diverse and balanced.
