Making Infrastructure ETFs Great Could Take a While

Investors looking for a yield play on infrastructure can consider the Guggenheim High Income Infrastructure ETF (NYSEArca: GHII), which is composed of the 50 highest-dividend-paying global infrastructure companies.

GHII’s assets under management “jumped more than 350 percent since Trump’s election to almost $29 million as of Feb. 13 as more investors noticed its performance, according to William Belden, head of Guggenheim’s ETFs development,” notes the Bloomberg article.

ETF investors who are wary of additional currency risks can also take a look at the recently launched Deutsche X-trackers S&P Hedged Global Infrastructure ETF (NYSEArca: DBIF), which includes similar exposure to IGF and GII, except DBIF tries to mitigate the negative effects of falling foreign currencies.

DBIF is higher by 21.1% over the past year.
