Whitehelm focuses on investing in core infrastructure assets that have monopoly characteristics and supply essential facilities and services needed for the effective functioning of communities. By investing in core infrastructure assets which typically have predictable cash flows, Whitehelm’s approach aims to generate a defensive equity return with a moderate yield and add value through active asset management.

Whitehelm’s investment philosophy is:

  • Only invest in ‘core’ infrastructure
  • Build a diversified portfolio of quality assets
  • Ensure every acquisition has a conservative capital structure and a sustainable cash yield
  • Don’t overpay, and be a patient investor
