Infrastructure Day Natixis

Conference and Cocktail

Natixis launched its 1st Infrastructure Day back in 2012. Our goal at the time was to increase investors’ awareness of what we believed was a specific asset class in its own right. Over the years, Natixis’ Infrastructure Day has become a major annual event for infrastructure debt investors.
What we are observing is that investors currently have significant amounts of liquidity to deploy while investment opportunities remain scarce. This is why we have decided to focus this 6th Infrastructure Day on the new frontiers of the Infrastructure asset class and we will be investigating new risk profiles, different geographies and new opportunities for investment.

> Main topics

    The Infrastructure new frontiers
  • Global 2018 economic forecast
  • Digitalization of the economy: a key driver of the development of telecom infrastructures
  • EDHEC infrastructure debt benchmark
  • Renewables : how to address increasing merchant risks
  • Update on Green bond market

HSBC Workshop on Green Finance

Conference / Cocktail

> Main topics

    Contributing to sustainable development is
  • For industrial companies and for banks
  • An ethical imperative which entails constraints but generates also business opportunities for whoever understands and embraces this evolution proactively as there are huge needs for large (infrastructure) and small investments in France and abroad.
  • The purpose of the conference is to show:
  • Where are the “green” markets, what it takes to win them and what is the strategy of HSBC in this area
  • Why green bonds are much more than a mere funding mechanism
  • And how very diverse categories of players can find their place in the green value chain
    • The international green infrastructure markets, their characteristics and how HSBC’s global strategy can help our clients to win business. Green bonds and their consequences on the business model and business relations of the issuer. How large corporates, SMEs, banks and asset managers can contribute to the green value chain.
