First State Global Listed Infrastructure

 
Citywire Selection verdict: Infrastructure investments have been in a sweet spot during the first half of 2014, with this fund well ahead of global equities. This is partly as infrastructure assets have great allure in a world of low yields. Moreover, the signs are that inflation might be returning after a brief hiatus and given infrastructure assets' inherent inflation protection, it will not just be their yield that is in demand. An assured defensive investment managed by Peter Meany that is good for any long-term investment portfolio.

How can it say that ;

"Over the past five years to 21 October the fund has returned 18.5%"

when, in the following paragraph, it states that ;

"Peter Meany’s fund is a little over three years old" ??
