Prior to this transaction, CONQUEST had increased the size of its assets under management to circa 70MW as a result of 3 transactions closed in less than a year. This portfolio, located in the South of France, benefits from up to 20-year secured and inflation linked power purchase agreements from local incumbent utility EDF.

“The financing market remains competitive across Western Europe for sustainable infrastructure. We are pleased with the outcome of this process and the quality of the project finance lenders and teams we managed to attract, which confirmed the quality of the underlying portfolio and its bankability to optimise our investors’ return. We eventually selected La Banque Postale and are looking forward to working with them and to building our relationship further,” said Emma Barnes, a Director at CONQUEST Group.

CONQUEST continues to deliver its alternative investment strategy targeting Sustainable Infrastructure real assets in Western Europe. CONQUEST secured to date a strong proprietary pipeline of greenfield, ready-to-build and operating investment opportunities, as a result of its privileged industrial network and tight connections with the industry. These investment opportunities mirror the fund’s investment strategy with a diversified array of assets (renewables, energy storage, transmission & distribution, and energy efficiency) serving long-term superior returns to institutional investors via less correlated, inflation-linked assets while addressing their sustainable finance targets.

About CONQUEST: CONQUEST Asset Management is part of CONQUEST Group, an independent investment management and financial advisory firm with significant expertise in a broad range of international transactions and strategic situations.

Egon Zehnder Global Board Diversity Tracker Suggests Gender Parity in the Boardroom May Never Be Achieved11.12.2018 09:01Tiedote

Egon Zehnder, the world's leadership advisory firm, today released the results of its 2018 Global Board Diversity Tracker. The study shows the accelerating growth seen in female directors in Western Europe is now levelling off, and growth elsewhere remains sluggish, suggesting gender parity on boards may never be reached at the current pace. The research, examining data from 1610 public companies with market caps above €7bn in 44 different countries, shows that despite the slow improvement in the number of women on boards, nearly three quarters of all new board positions worldwide still go to men. Jill Ader, Chairwoman of Egon Zehnder, said: “We need diversity, but it’s simply not happening fast enough. New voices and perspectives are essential to unlock the transformational capabilities that businesses tell us they need. Companies - starting from the very top - have to recognize the impact that a critical mass of women on the board and the executive committee makes and take the steps
