Nick Sketch: investment trusts with an edge in income

Infrastructure investments are also hard to reach via UTs. The reality is that our taxes are paying a return to investors and the sector offers predictable revenues, high yields and some protection from inflation.
With the supply of new assets apparently continuous, care needs to be taken over timing purchases to avoid an unsustainable premium in the price paid, and this sector is not risk-free, but income yields of 5-6% (and long-term total returns probably 1% or 2% higher) can justify their place in many portfolios, particularly if income-biased or tax-sheltered.
