Blue Economy Investment Platform

The Blue Economy is already significant and comprises shipping, fisheries, aquaculture, marine renewables, bioeconomic and even coastal tourism. In 2012, the Commission estimated that it represented over 5 million jobs and a gross added value of around €500bn per year. It also affects a large number of the EU population, with an estimated 40% living within 50km from the sea. The European Commission's Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries is developing an approach to promote innovation and mobilize investment in the blue economy. This is encouraged through establishing a project pipeline of potential initiatives. Gregor is part of a team that is currently consulting with the European Commission on the establishment of a dedicated investment platform for the Blue Economy.

World Bank  

Most of Kenyan pension funds are far smaller in scale and lack the experience and expertise to move into new asset classes. One way to overcome these hurdles is for pension funds to come together and co-invest via collaborative investment platforms. This was the route taken by, for example, several pension funds in the UK – which established the Pension Infrastructure Investment Platform (PIP) in 2013. This Kenyan project has involved creating an investment strategy for a group of Kenyan pension Funds that will allow them to invest in Infrastructure as an asset class in Kenya and the East African community. It comprised legal and commercial structuring, consideration of the market potential, governance structures and alignment with regulation by the CMA, the Retirement Benefits Authority and the Kenyan Revenue Authority.
