On August 29th, 2023, the Rize Global Sustainable Infrastructure UCITS ETF (NFRA) debuted on the London Stock Exchange and Deutschen Börse Xetra.
NFRA seeks to invest in the foremost companies that potentially stand to benefit from the worldwide effort to support infrastructure development in a way that balances economic, environmental and social objectives. These are companies involved in maintaining and upgrading the existing infrastructure of more industrialised economies, as well as companies developing new infrastructure required for the economic advancement of less industrialised economies. This includes companies involved in the development of the environmental and social infrastructure needed for our transition to a greener, fairer economy.
The investment categories include (i) Transportation Infrastructure, (ii) Environmental Infrastructure, (iii) Data and Telecom Infrastructure; and (iv) Social Infrastructure.
In the intricate tapestry of society, infrastructure stands as the unassuming thread that weaves together the fabric of progress. Often overlooked, it serves as the backbone of our daily lives, enabling everything from the simple act of turning on a light switch to the complex mechanisms that power entire industries. Here, we explore the essential nature of infrastructure in fostering economic growth and how it plays a fundamental role in achieving global development objectives.
