What is an Infrastructure Fund?

An Infrastructure Mutual Fund is a mutual fund for infrastructure development. Infra funds invest a minimum of 80% of their assets in companies that are a part of the infrastructure sector. Infrastructure development is crucial for the economic growth and development of a country, and infra funds help contribute to that development while giving investors potential gains in the long run

The performance of an Infrastructure Mutual Fund may be highly dependent on government policies and bureaucracy; they are thus categorised as a very high-risk fund, but they also have the potential to give stable returns in the long term. Development of infrastructure often continues during economic slowdowns, albeit at a slower pace. These funds may be relatively less volatile.

As infrastructure is tangible, it may generate cash flow in the long term. Infrastructure mutual funds also allow the investor to diversify their investments and may potentially protect investors from volatility when stock prices fluctuate. Nevertheless, most infrastructure funds in India are high-risk-return investments.

Who Should Invest in Infrastructure Investment Funds?

Although Infrastructure investment funds may offer some stability to your financial portfolio, they are a high-risk investment.
