EDHEC Infra Days 2023 is the annual two-day conference of this institute that addresses some of the most burning questions facing investors in infrastructure. It will feature the presentation of the latest research on Day 1, followed by the application of this research through data solutions in an industry context on Day 2.

Program overview

 

(DAY 1) Infrastructure Day - The Imperative of Risk Management

The first day will focus on academic work on the climate, social and financial risks of unlisted equity and private infrastructure debt investments. Many investors remain exposed to a concentrated portfolio of infrastructure assets and these risks can be very material for them, even if they seem low on average in some cases. Better risk measurement is possible thanks to cutting edge research developed at the Institute in 2023. This research provides relevant, conceptual, robust facts and data to the infrastructure investment community.

MORNING SESSIONS: ESG, FROM MEASUREMENT TO MATERIALITY

The morning session focuses on ESG regulation and its frameworks, social acceptability in infrastructure and measuring climate risks at the asset level using a combination of models to estimate emissions, exposure to physical risk, and the valuation of climate risks in different climate scenarios.

AFTERNOON SESSIONS: MEASURING FINANCIAL RISKS TO BETTER MANAGE THEM

The afternoon focuses on measuring risk and volatility in the value and returns  of infrastructure investments and shows how this data is necessary for infrastructure  to achieve its full potential in the portfolio.

 

(DAY 2) Inframetrics Day

The second day, infraMetrics day, will be dedicated to our data solutions, applications drawn from the Institute’s research. Here again, interaction with the infrastructure investing community will be a core part of the seven workshops devoted to use cases for the financial and extra-financial infrastructure data available on the infraMetrics platform.

WORKSHOP 1: INDICES AND BENCHMARKS

WORKSHOP 2: VALUATION TOOLS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE EQUITY INVESTMENTS

WORKSHOP 3: INFRAMETRICS FOR DEBT INVESTORS

WORKSHOP 4: CLIMATE IMPACT AND RISK DATA IN INFRAMETRICS

WORKSHOP 5: TCFD REPORTING AND BEYOND - A CUSTOMISED ANALYSIS OF THE CLIMATE RISK OF AN INFRASTRUCTURE PORTFOLIO
