Infrastructure incorporates everything a society does to turn on electricity, build roads, establish communication networks, deliver water, and create and maintain sewage systems.
The iShares S&P Infrastructure Index Fund (IGF) offers all-in-one access to the industry. However, volume has been light and performance has been shaky. The SPDR/FTSE Macquarie Global Infrastructure Fund (GII) has been less volatile. Yet, in my opinion, GII replicates utilities at the exclusion of energy and transportation infrastructure.
