Re: Investing in Green Infrastructure Funds (ITs)

Well, PrefInvestor, the fund is VT GRAVIS CLEAN ENERGY INCOME and the annual historic yield is 3.79% (ouch). However, it has made 20.13% in the past 12 months. But I guess the 6 UK green infrastructure funds have done about the same. Some of the figures don't add up by the way John Laing Environment...

Agreed (having looked them up) - is the quality of the assets similar? Cos if so CREI would do well to buy them out at NAV!
