Australian Infrastructure Fund: “Although AIX is not immune to the challenging economic and aviation climate, its portfolio largely comprises Australian airports, which have traditionally exhibited defensive characteristics, have continued to show growth despite generally poor economic conditions and have historically recovered general economic downturns and event-driven shocks within a relatively short period of time. AIX remains cautiously optimistic towards the short-term performance of these assets and is confident of their value over the longer term," Company statement. Source: AIX, 26-Auf-2009.
