UBS Global Infrastructure & Utilities Indices


Infrastructure indices are used to measure the performance of a portfolio of listed infrastructure stocks. Some indices serve as benchmarks for listed infrastructure funds and may also form the basis for infrastructure-based exchange-traded funds.

Although the indices have the word “global” in the title, their exposure is predominantly from developed countries, with data going as far back as 1990. The UBS Infrastructure and Utilities Index series provide the most relevant sector classifications for listed Australian Infrastructure & Utilities stocks. The indices are calculated based on company free-float market capitalizations, as defined by S&P. Price and total return index data is calculated daily by S&P.
