Consisting of seven specialist forums including Emerging markets, ESG and sustainability, Energy transition, Digital infrastructure, Government projects, Infrastructure debt, the Global Summit offers something for everyone involved in infrastructure. Among the investors in attendance are EIB, GIC, EBRD and New York Life Investors.

The Infrastructure Investor Global Summit aims to explore the ever-changing needs of the asset class. Commenting on the event, which is tipped to be bigger than ever, Frederic Michel-Verdier said:

"The infrastructure investment managers have now fully embraced the importance of sustainable investments and the positive impacts of a sound Environmental, Social and Governance approach on investments and on society in general. It is a challenging environment but also very exciting times to be part of this industry. I am convinced we will assist to highly interesting debates to better define what good looks like from a sustainability perspective but also challenges of value creation in the ongoing energy transition in Europe."

Frederic Michel-Verdier went on to say:
"The asset class again proved its attractiveness with a record fundraising of close to $100 billion in 2019."

Also, attending, Olivier Meyer, Partner at Omea Advisors stated: ''It is important that we look to the future of the infrastructure asset class. New opportunities are everywhere and being on the forefront of the asset class at this time is very exciting. But it is becoming crucial to integrate investment professionals with highly experienced industry and operating partners to de-risk the investments in this more competitive environment.''
