Focus and Agenda
IIF Americas 2016 will provide a unique insight into a market that has been reenergized by the arrival of a variety of assets from across all sectors.
This reenergization was spurred by assets from a number of sectors coming to market as fund investments reach maturity as well as by other opportunities from new areas. The challenges infrastructure investors face in the current market will be the focus of the discussions and presentations taking place during this day-long forum.
The energy sector continues to be a source of much infrastructure investor activity in North America. Low commodity prices have allowed infrastructure funds to pursue investments which MLPs have traditionally dominated. At the same time, a greater degree of stress has prompted oil and gas companies that anticipated higher prices to dispose of some pipeline assets. On our midstream panel a selection of energy investors, advisors and corporates actively selling and buying these assets will discuss the opportunities these developments present and how best to manage the associated risks.
The North America renewables sector had been reaching maturity even before the Obama administration announced its commitment to renewables through its Clean Power Plan. An increase in the number and size of deals to reach financial close as well as the formation of new investment alliances suggests that the sector will continue to be dynamic. Renewables pioneers and veteran investors will join our renewables panel to talk about the role traditional infrastructure investors can play in the sector and where new opportunities can be found.
The IIF Americas program will also take special note of the opportunities emerging in the transportation sector where the maturity of toll road and other investments have triggered auctions that have fetched particularly high prices. The success of these deals has been a catalyst for further sale processes. Industry leaders, including traditional investors, institutionals and transportation sponsors will discuss how high these prices can go and where the next big transportation deals are likely to come from.
By the time IIF Americas 2016 takes place, the North American political scene will also have come to a more settled conclusion on some of the region’s more difficult questions about the asset class. Not least in Canada where the impact of this October’s general election will be more fully understood.
IIF Americas 2016 takes place at a crucial moment in the industry and allows LPs, GPS and developers to network and determine how they can best assist each other in addressing these new issues. The event offers attendees a rare chance to rub shoulders with the industry’s main stakeholders and learn about the directions in which they are taking infrastructure investing.
