Financing sustainable infrastructure through combined experience

Q&A with two of the fund managers

“By teaming up we are able to accelerate project development”

How did the idea originate to establish a jointly fund?

"In today’s world, having sufficient knowledge and access to projects is vital to investors. EPICo brings us – as Flemish investment agency PMV and an independent Dutch consultancy and investment company Rebel – together in a jointly fund with which we are equipped to do both. Moreover, the fund represents a brand new and valuable co-operation between Belgium and the Netherlands."

What type of projects you want to develop within EPICo?

""EPICo focusses amongst others on public-private partnership projects (PPPs) such as road building, gymnasiums, public infrastructure and renewable energy. These are mostly long-term projects with a duration of about 30 years. After all, the investors committed to the fund prefer stable and long-term returns over maximum returns. We are currently researching several investment projects."
