FOCUSED INVESTMENT APPROACH

Our focus is Australian infrastructure.

With Australia’s strong economic environment, we focus on investment in mid-market infrastructure investments, minimising competitive pressure on asset prices. Investment across economic, contracted and regulated infrastructure assets can deliver robust and strong cashflows and capital growth if assets are managed actively. Unique business and financial fundamentals must exist to ensure infrastructure delivers appropriate risk adjusted returns to investors.

“Essential facilities and services necessary for efficient functioning of economies.”

RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT

Palisade’s philosophy is to deliver secure long term returns, aligned with the interests of its investors and the community.  Palisade recognises its duty to behave responsibly in its business activities and towards those whom its actions affect.

As an investment manager, we believe that a high standard of business conduct as well as a responsible approach to social, environmental and ethical issues makes good business sense and is more likely to create sustainable value over the long term.  Conversely, poor management of those issues may pose a risk to the reputation and value of businesses.

We consider long term environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in making investment decisions and in actively managing investments, encouraging better management of ESG factors and associated risks.  Assets exhibiting strong ESG credentials are key to the alignment of the interests and objectives of investors with those of the communities which the assets in which we invest serve.
