Striving for sustainability: Understanding Asia’s green ambitions and investment risks

Asia’s clean energy revolution has been sweeping, creating unabundant investment opportunities and energy needs as governments roll out ambitious renewable targets in a commitment to sustainable growth. The key to successfully investing in this green growth comes from understanding the evolving renewable landscape – it also involves an assessment of key risks and developing an outlook to where the industry is heading from here. Our panel discussion will provide essential insights into how Asia’s green ambitions are fueling the sector’s ascent.

  • Where are the current market and sector opportunities? Which are failing to keep pace with the renewable energy drive?
  • In which Asian markets do the risks outweigh the rewards when investing in renewable?
  • Where will investors find the most clean energy opportunities in five years’ time? In 10 years?

15:00 Panel discussion followed by Q&A

Roads and rails, pipes and power: Capitalizing on Asia’s infrastructure needs

Asia faces an unprecedented gap in its existing infrastructure, forcing countries in the region’s advanced and emerging markets to race to roll out projects to meet growing demands amid demographic shifts. These efforts, which increasingly require private sector capital, can offer promising opportunities for investors, however, risks and challenges must also be factored in. Our panel will discuss best practices and strategies investors can take to capitalize on Asia’s massive (and growing) infrastructure needs.

  • Emerging vs Advanced Asia: Where are the opportunities and how does investing and risk assessment differ in each?
  • What will be the role of Chinese investors and those from outside the region in helping Asia fulfill its infrastructure needs, and what are the key risks to participating in these projects?
  • What can Chinese investors expect to experience when investing outside China?
