SMi Reports: Key industry players to discuss financing infrastructure in the Benelux region at the 17th annual Benelux Infrastructure Forum next month in Amsterdam.
Like most economies, the Benelux region relies heavily on international investment and with numerous exciting infrastructure projects planned, the region is attracting many new foreign investors. Nevertheless, financing regulations in the EU can discourage investors as rules attached to PPP and other financing methods can prove complex.
SMi’s 17th annual Benelux Infrastructure Forum (http://www.beneluxconf.com/pnhqpr), aims to educate attendees on this and provide valuable information about financing regulations in the Benelux region. Benjamin Hemming, Senior Investment Manager Infrastructure Debt at MEAG MUNICH ERGO KapitalanlagegesellschaftmbH, will be sharing his knowledge and expertise on the subject on day two of the forum when he presents his keynote presentation on “Managing Public-Private Partnership (PPP) financing regulations with EU and non-EU investors”.
Mr Hemming will explore handling liquidity and fund allocation for local infrastructure projects, monitoring non-EU institutional funding for regional plans, Korean investments into Benelux projects, increasing compliance with regional regulatory controls, and following market trends and increasing bank-institutional investment partnerships.
Joining Mr Hemming on day two will be a host of infrastructure financing experts including Alessandro Izzo, Head of Division, Project Finance Western Europe at European Investment Bank, Benoit Theys, Head of Infrastructure Debt at AG Insurance, Willem Stitselaar, Managing Director at Macquarie Capital, Alistair Perkins, Head of Infrastructure and Project Finance at NN Investment Partners, and many more.
Attendees will also benefit from hearing real life case studies, with Andrew Petry, Partner at Simmons & Simmons presenting on “Green Energy Projects in the Benelux Region: The Markbygden Wind Farm”, focusing on leading green energy, investing in the onshore wind industry to generate further funding lead flows, and a case study on the Markbygden On-Shore Wind Farm. In addition, Marie de Graaf, Head of Business Development at Orsted, is also set to give a case study presentation on day one, focusing on “Supporting Green Energy Transition in the Benelux Region”.
With 5+ hours of dedicated networking, attendees will also have the chance to meet the major players in the industry and learn about the challenges and solutions to infrastructure, as well as the opening of the market towards renewable energy.
