Europe’s leading asset management company focused on InfraTech to make the investment case for next generation technology, and its role in solving some of the world’s most pressing issues.
[London, Bratislava: 17 January 2020] Marian Bocek, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of IPM Group (IPM), Europe’s pioneer in InfraTech asset management, will be attending the World Economic Forum (WEF), Davos 2020 to champion the debate for long-term, sustainable investment.
IPM’s investment strategy is fully aligned to the theme of this year’s Forum: Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World. The specialist asset management firm invests in companies and projects that are positioned to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues in the sectors of energy, mobility and AI enabled critical infrastructure.
Founded in 2014, with over one billion US dollars in assets under management to date, IPM focuses on investments in the InfraTech sector, the cross-section between real assets infrastructure and ground-breaking technologies that aim to tackle climate change. It currently holds InfraTech positions in the clean energy, waste management and social infrastructure sectors. Its most recent investment in InoBat, an R&D and battery production company, will see it providing solutions for the growing battery demand in electromobility and energy storage sectors, aiming to contribute towards achieving carbon neutrality and technological independence of Europe.
Marian Bocek has been invited to contribute to a range of panel discussions at WEF, ranging from responsible innovation to eliminating auto industry emissions.
Marian Bocek, Managing Partner of IPM commented:
“Climate risk is investment risk. The theme of this year’s WEF at Davos reflects both a human and investment imperative. Global asset managers have an urgent moral duty not only to invest in companies that aim to combat climate change, but to go further: to drive change in those industries by supporting the ecosystems and value chains that will act as catalysts for their growth.
“As next generation asset managers focused on InfraTech, we need to consider both the physical risks associated with climate change as well as the ways that climate policy will impact costs, prices and demand globally. Next generation technology will provide many of the solutions to world’s most pressing issues in the sectors of energy, mobility and AI enabled critical infrastructure sectors. We are positioning our investment portfolio to both contribute to and benefit from that dynamic.”
