Investing in renewables: manager selection and debt funds

Share this article

Renewable funds have become increasingly mainstream in the energy sector as we continue to ride the wave of transition to a low carbon future. The rise of climate-friendly investments have brought more competition into this sector, and investors are having to be diligent in the strategies they choose to secure returns.

In the first of our two sessions, our panellists team up and debate on whether specialists or diversified managers are more likely to succeed in renewables. The second of our two session takes a deep dive into renewable debt funds and provides valuable insight into the state of the market.


Specialist vs. diversified managers - who is best placed to win at renewables?

Separated into the blue corner for diversified managers, and the green corner for specialist managers, watch the session as our panellists team up and debate on which type of managers have the upper hand when it comes to renewable investments.

  • Raj Rao, Partner, Global Infrastructure Partners
  • Harsh Agrawal, Partner, I Squared Capital

Green corner (specialist):

  • Lucy Heintz, Partner, Actis
  • Steen Lønberg Jørgensen, Partner, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP)

Moderated by Yves Meyer Buelow, Managing Director, Head of Infra Funds & Co-investment, Allianz Capital Partners.
