A balanced, blended approach to infrastructure investment provides stable income, global diversification and transparency within a cost-effective framework. 

 

* 2018 Preqin Global Infrastructure Report 

The general principles of the GLIO Index are to capture companies engaged in activities that are 'mission critical' to the day-to-day functioning of society and the global economy.

Companies must derive 75% of EBITDA from the following infrastructure groups: Energy Transportation & Storage, Communications Infrastructure, Transportation, Renewable Energy and Regulated Network Utilities.  

Timely information, investment research and statistics, plus backing from the major global banks within the GLIO network, ensures investors have key analytics at their fingertips to help make investment decisions.

 

Working with the investment media enables GLIO to convey the benefits of listed infrastructure investment to a global audience.
