In May 2022, two key actors of the infrastructure ecosystem - namely the GI Hub formed by the G20 and EDHECinfra created by EDHEC Business School - have announced a new strategic partnership. Rooted in an existing collaboration, this initiative aims at joining forces of the not-for-profit organization which helps decisionmakers and practitioners to create positive impacts through infrastructure projects, with the provider of indices and analytics for the infrastructure investment universe.
Among the previous projects led together by GI Hub and EDHECinfra, we find in 2016 two studies, entitled “Investor insights about infrastructure growth” and “Towards Better Infrastructure Investment Products?”, and in 2019 the “Global Infrastructure Investor Survey” report.
In the joint press release, Marie Lam-Frendo, Chief Executive Officer of the GI Hub, expressed her satisfaction as regards this partnership : “In our capacity as a knowledge-sharing hub we produce data, insights, tools, and programs that enable our stakeholders to create positive infrastructure outcomes. We look forward to working with EDHECinfra on activities that will add value to the infrastructure ecosystem”. While Frederic Blanc-Brude, Director of EDHECinfra, stressed that “EDHECinfra and GI Hub’s vision, strategic priorities and scope of operations point to several synergistic areas of cooperation in data, analytics and policy actions to support an ambitious global agenda to deliver infrastructure in a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive manner”.
