Head of Infrastructure Private Debt

We are one of the first actors on this market to provide reports on the carbon and socio-economic impacts of our investments, and to integrate a 2°C scenario in our strategies.

Key features 
of our offering

1.

We focus on SRI investment  in infrastructures in order to contribute to sectors that are essential to the economy and to the energy transition.

2.

We opt for a defensive strategy via senior secured debt in all sustainable European infrastructure sectors (the exclusions being weapons, nuclear and coal-fired power plants, and mining projects). 

3.

We are involved throughout the asset lifecycle, from greenfield (construction phase) to brownfield (operating phase) to acquisition financing and refinancing.  

4.

We generally see a liquidity premium vs. corporate bonds of the same duration and rating.
