Case Studies

EFSI

The European Fund for Strategic Investment is the major pillar of the European Union’s investment plan for Europe. It uses an EU and EIB guarantee to allow the latter to invest in a broad spectrum of infrastructure, SME, banking and fund of fund investments. As such it is the biggest Infrastructure fund structure globally. Since inception in 2015, it has invested in over EUR50 billions of underlying projects and companies, split between SME’s (30%), R&D (22%), Energy (20%), digital (11%) and transport (9%), with social impact and efficiency investments making up the remainder.

UNCDF 

UNCDF is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 47 least developed countries (LDCs). With its capital mandate and instruments, UNCDF designs finance models to unlock private resources and to reduce poverty and support local economic development. The UNCDF is trying to reach pockets of poverty, where available resources for development are scarcest; where market failures are most pronounced; and where benefits from national growth tend to leave people excluded. UNCDF is involved in advocacy, advisory services and investments. Gregor sits on the Impact Investment Committee, which makes commercial lending decisions on borrowing propositions from SME’s in countries like Myanmar, Cambodia, Tanzania, Benin, and Burkina Faso. 

Mergence 

Mergence is a full service listed and unlisted equity and debt house that specializes in investing funds on behalf of institutional and pension fund clients. It is based in Cape Town, South Africa. Mergence is a 100% black-owned, organically grown, South African asset manager, who was the most active non-bank players in the earlier investment activity into the renewable energy sector experienced in South Africa. Mergence now has three Infrastructure facilities targeting respectively; senior debt, equity and mezzanine positions in attractive Infrastructure assets, as well as numerous projects in the Southern African market. 

Green Investment Bank & UK Climate Investments 

Gregor was previously the Managing Director of the UK Green Investment Bank (UK GIB). The GIB was an institution created by a UK Act of Parliament, which in three short years has grown into a global leader in the Green Infrastructure investment sector. Initially allocated £3.8bn, it successfully concluded over 70 individual investments in clean energy infrastructures in the UK from £10m in transactions in Public Lighting to £270m in investments in offshore wind farms. The UK GIB has subsequently been privatized through a sale to Macquarie Bank and renamed the Green Investment Group. While MD, Gregor also sat on the UKCI Investment Committee. UK Climate Investments is a joint venture company between the government department BEIS and the GIB with a funding commitment of £200m focusing on equity and quasi-equity investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency in South Africa, East Africa and India.
