“We consider IGF’s dividend to be sustainable. In addition, we expect dividend payouts to be stable as the companies held in this ETF are not especially highly leveraged and thus don’t face substantial balance-sheet risk,” Goldsborough added.
Alternatively, the SPDR S&P Global Infrastructure ETF (NYSEArca: GII) also tracks the same S&P Global Infrastructure Index as IGF. GII shows a 3.68% dividend yield and a 0.40% expense ratio. However, GII is much smaller than IGF and a lower trading volume, so potential investors may want to utilize limit orders to better execute trades. [EM Growth With Infrastructure ETFs]
