Financing the infrastructure of tomorrow
Mirova’s Infrastructure team is dedicated to financing the infrastructure of tomorrow.
Within Mirova, the Responsible Investment division of Natixis Asset Management, the Infrastructure team (Mirova Environment and Infrastructure*) works on projects that address sustainable development issues. Achieving a new “industrial revolution” will involve an in-depth change in our infrastructure so as to adapt it to the energy transition, as well as building infrastructure with a strong social impact.
With a dozen investment professionals, the team focuses on two key areas: energies and public-private partnerships.
“We offer investment funds in the European renewable energy sector (wind and solar power, biomass, etc.),” explains Raphaël Lance.
“Our funds invest in a wide variety of public infrastructure projects in France: universities, stadiums, hospitals, urban and rail transport, etc.,” underscores Gwénola Chambon.
At end-December 2012, Mirova’s Infrastructure team had close to €6 billion in assets under management in four funds: Fideme, Eurofideme 2, FIDEPPP and FIDEPPP 2.
Today, financing new infrastructure requires the use of innovative sources of funding, notably private savings.
This is a fundamental trend that will provide concrete solutions to sustainable development issues.
