- Real Estate Securities;
- Infrastructure Securities; and
- Natural Resources Securities.
The Fund may invest in securities of companies or issuers of any size market capitalization. The Fund will invest in companies or issuers located throughout the world and there is no limitation on the Fund’s investments in foreign securities or in emerging markets.

Why Invest in the Brookfield Diversified Real Assets Securities UCITS Fund
A Fund that Approaches Multiple Investment Objectives
Investors often turn to real assets as a means of preserving purchasing power against the eroding effects of inflation. While inflation protection is an important objective of the Brookfield Real Asset Fund, the investment team also emphasizes the investment objectives of income and growth potential.
The Income and Growth Potential of Real-Asset-Related Securities
As the backbone of the global economy, real assets are all subject to long-cycle fundamental growth drivers such as population growth, urbanization trends and periodic supply constraints. These megatrends, in turn, can potentially drive the cash-flow and asset-value growth of real assets.
The cash flows of some real-asset classes, such as real estate and infrastructure, are generated from contracted or regulated revenues. Accordingly, these companies have the potential to generate steady and enduring streams of income. The Manager also allocates a portion of assets to the debt securities of real-asset-related companies, based on the view that some of the same investment characteristics found in their equities also flow through their debt securities.
The Flexibility to Make Tactical Shifts in Asset Allocation
The Manager may also allocate to other real asset classes deemed to be more opportunistic in nature. For example, such allocations could include natural resource equities, commodities and TIPS, which all tend to have a positive sensitivity to changes in inflation. offers the potential to capitalize on event-driven market conditions or evolving macroeconomic trends.
A Distinctive Investment Team with Specialized Expertise
The Fund harnesses the collective expertise of Brookfield’s dedicated investment management teams to select the Fund’s holdings in publicly traded real assets, primarily focused on real estate, infrastructure and real asset debt securities.
