Infratech webinar series

Given the rapid evolution of technology over the last 30 years, it was only a matter of time for traditional infrastructure to become ‘digital’ and for digital technology to be considered ‘infrastructure’. When it comes to defining this, do assets even have to be physical, and to what extent can software demonstrate infrastructure-like characteristics?

Irrespective of labels, the demand for investable assets has increased and with that comes different risk profiles and models. So what do we mean by Infratech? Where are the opportunities and how can we get comfortable with the new risks?

This webinar series will provide a unique insight into the current trends and opportunities as well as examine how technology and infrastructure are converging to create worlds of the future.


EP 1 | The Next Frontiers of Technology in Infrastructure and Energy

Our esteemed keynote Rohit Talwar, CEO of Fast Future, opens our Infratech Webinar Series looking into how the current pandemic has masked underlying trends around the future role of advanced technology in both fabric and management of physical infrastructure and the energy ecosystem.


Ep 2 | Data Centres: How Do I Connect to the Opportunities?

Infrastructure investors have been circling the data centre space anxious to deploy capital into what appears to be a great opportunity not to be missed. However, is it really an infrastructure asset? Where in the world to invest?


EP 3 | Digitalisation: Accelerating Infrastructure Delivery

The digitalisation of construction has been growing in recent years, only to be significantly accelerated during this pandemic. We now look to infrastructure as the key to global recovery with new technological capabilities leading the way.


EP 4 | Big Data, AI and Infrastructure

The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated the vital role of digital infrastructure in enabling the continuance of a civil society. We now depend on AI to make use of the vast pools of data generated by smart infrastructure but are there dangers in us becoming too reliant?


EP 5 | Future Mobility – The Road to Impactful Infrastructure

The future of mobility is having a significant impact on infrastructure, requiring a different approach to planning and financing but what does this mean for investors and stakeholders?


EP 6 |  Digital: The New Core Infrastructure? 

Digital Infrastructure is now an essential component of any infrastructure portfolio. Now seen as more core than even certain regulated industries. Is that justified? Are investors properly pricing in construction and ramp up risk? What will be the impact of 5G? How are the listed corporates reacting to the disconnect between public and private valuations and how to explain the difference?

This webinar will take place on 3 February 2021


EP 7 | Smart Cities – Hype or Reality?
