BNY Mellon Investment Management launches active global infrastructure income ETF sub-advised by Newton Investment Management


The BNY Mellon Global Infrastructure Income ETF provides exposure to infrastructure asset classes while seeking a forward-looking 12-month gross annualized return of 6% or more for its portfolio.

NEW YORK, November 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BNY Mellon Investment Management, one of the world’s largest asset managers with $1.8 trillion in assets under management1, today announced the launch of the BNY Mellon Global Infrastructure Income ETF (ticker: BKGI). The ETF, which is listed on Cboe Global Markets, is sub-advised by Newton Investment Management North America, LLC (Newton), a BNY Mellon investment company and leading equity and multi-asset manager with a long experience in investment.

The BNY Mellon Global Infrastructure Income ETF provides exposure to traditional and non-traditional infrastructure stocks while seeking to generate quarterly income through a portfolio of global equities. The fund’s traditional infrastructure mix includes energy, industrials and utilities, and its non-traditional infrastructure includes communications, healthcare and real estate. The fund’s dual mandate aims to provide exposure to listed infrastructure while targeting a 12-month annualized gross return of 6% or more for its portfolio2.

The BNY Mellon Global Infrastructure Income ETF is managed by Newton’s Deputy Head of Equity Investments and Head of Income Equity, Jacques LydotesCFA, and the firm’s head of global equity research, Brock CampbellCFA.

“A key differentiator of infrastructure assets from other assets is their historical predictability and stability through market cycles, as there is a constant need for these services, such as water, electricity, hospitals and telecommunications, to name a few,” Mr. Lydote said. “Infrastructure is a diverse asset class that aligns with global societal trends and growth demands, such as increased broadband access via 5G, energy transition and support for an aging population through senior living and acute care. We believe that infrastructure assets can also offer growth potential such as regular income and potential equity diversification for clients.”

“We are delighted to offer our clients the BNY Mellon Global Infrastructure Income ETF as a new offering in our growing range of ETFs. This addition underscores our continued commitment to delivering innovative, results-driven strategies through multi-purpose vehicles,” said Andy Provencher, head of North American distribution at BNY Mellon Investment Management. “By leveraging Newton’s capabilities, knowledge and expertise in equity investing, we are able to deliver a differentiated infrastructure approach to our clients.”

In addition, ETFs are subject to the risk that an active trading market for the shares of an ETF may not develop or be sustained. The purchase or sale of ETF shares on an exchange may require the payment of brokerage commissions. ETFs trade like stocks and are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of capital.
