This forum will focus on the synergies between the public sector and private investors in long-term investment. Participants will consider the role and contribution of institutional investors, such as insurance companies and pension funds, in providing long-term funding. They will examine how the market is shaping up, current trends and constraints, and how the investors’ future strategies are being influenced. In particular, existing and future financial instruments will be discussed, including the use of project bonds. The forum aims to foster a dialogue between the public and the private sector.
