The strategy seeks to capture the defensive characteristics of regulated, cash-generative businesses, while generating top-tier equity income globally.
This strategy is offered by Newton Investment Management North America LLC (‘NIMNA’) in the United States. NIMNA is part of the Newton Investment Management Group.
We consider investments from a particularly expansive universe, which we believe provides us with a significant competitive advantage. Investments in the strategy must meet a very specific set of criteria:
Hard asset-owning business models
Operate in heavily regulated industries
Generate stable cash flows that largely return to shareholders in the form of dividends.
The portfolio is highly concentrated, holding between 20 and 40 names from our global opportunity set. Our differentiated approach to infrastructure investing provides us with an investible universe that exhibits the same characteristics as peers at over six times the size. Our ability to invest in a broader opportunity set allows for a disciplined, value-based approach that seeks to consistently deliver a 6% equity dividend yield profile.
We seek to deliver a consistent 6% equity yield profile throughout the market cycle, solid capital preservation and attractive upside participation in strong global equity market environments.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Your capital may be at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
