More and more industries are chasing assets in the sustainability sector. “Currently there is a lot of liquidity looking for very few assets,” said Lars Quandel, head of energy and infrastructure at HSH Nordbank, Germany.

Quandel told Impact4All in a video interview: “For investors, the earnings are still very important. They look for returns which fit in with their profile and at the same time build a sustainable footprint. They want to to build their reputation in the [sustainable] area and with the public,” he said.

“[Sustainable investment is popular] for all investors. Institutional investors are more and more active on the equity side and the debt side. We have observed a lot of change in the asset classes and a lot of movement. You have to pick the right asset and it’s a challenge for all investors,” said the energy and infrastructure head.
