BNY Mellon launches Latin America infrastructure fund

BNY Mellon Asset Managemen is launching a new long only Latin America infrastructure fund.

The fund will be managed by one of the firm’s boutiques, BNY Mellon ARX Investimentos. The boutique is based in Brazil and targets multi-strategy and equity investments in the Latin American marketplace.

According to BNY Mellon, Latin America has the highest levels of infrastructure globally, with $450bn of projects planned between now and 2015.

The fund will focus on capital goods, transportation, steel, telecommunications and energy companies related to infrastructure in Latin America. It will have a concentrated portfolio of between 35-50 stocks and strict risk controls, this includes maximum weightings of companies and sectors in the portfolio, with the aim of ensuring capital preservation.

BNY Mellon Asset Manaagement head of international distribution Paul Feeney says: “The combination of a relatively long period of political stability and robust economic growth are transforming Latin America into one of the most compelling regions for investors. Recent economic data from the region strongly points towards an increase in infrastructure budgets across Latin American countries, particularly in Brazil. Against this background, we believe that actively managed investment funds such as the BNY Mellon Latin America infrastructure fund could provide investors growing returns from the opportunities available in this sector.”
