Finance Minister Michael Noonan and Public Expenditure Minister Brendan Howlin today held a press conference following their meeting with officials from the European Investment Bank. Minister Noonan said: A number of specific announcements of projects involving EIB investment have been made over the past few days and, as we set out to the board of the EIB today, there is a strong pipeline of commercially viable projects in Ireland. It was clear from today's meeting that the EIB are very interested in investing in traditional infrastructure projects, directly in SME's and in other private companies and officials in the Department of Finance, Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the EIB will continue to work together to find innovative funding solutions. President Hoyer will give you more details on this. Transport Minister Leo Varadkar today announced that the EIB has agreed to provide 50% of the project debt of approx. €120m for the N11/Newlands Cross Public Private Partnership (PPP) road. The Bank of Ireland is the other co-funder for the project. Minister Howlin welcomed the announcement that the road has been signed off on by all partners and that work will now begin on this important project. This project will add to the stock of economic infrastructure in the State and will create and sustain important jobs in the construction sector. Minister Howlin said I am very pleased that we have achieved sign off on the latest roads project to be delivered using the Public Private Partnership model. This is an important PPP which encompasses two projects. The N11 Arklow / Rathnew Scheme will form part of the N11 Rosslare to Dublin route and is also part of Euro-route E1. The scheme also incorporates the upgrade of the N7 Newlands Cross Junction. More specifically the scheme comprises the following separate elements: N11 Rathnew to Arklow Road Improvement Scheme (16.5km of new dual c/way linking the existing M11 Arklow Bypass and M11 Ashford/Rathnew schemes); and N7 Newlands Cross Junction Upgrade Scheme (Replacement of existing signaled controlled at-grade junction with a grade separated junction on the N7)

Getting European Electricity Transmission Infrastructure Financed | Arthur Henriot
Author: Arthur Henriot (Research Assistant, Florence School of Regulation) Category: FSR webinar recording Level: advanced Date of release: May 2013 This is a recording of webinar held on 7 May 2013, moderated by Magdalena Mos (FSR Training Coordinator) Arthur Henriot presents the results of his research on the financing of the European Electricity Transmission Network. He questions the ability of European electricity TSOs to achieve unprecedented capital expenditures, given their current financial situation. He identified a significant financing gap in case of a steady increase in tariffs, wonders what would be the costs for users to meet the whole investment program, and assesses the potential for alternative financing strategies to dampen the impact on transmission tariffs. The learning objectives of the webinar are: - To understand the nature of the financing challenge for European electricity TSOs, - To analyse the impact of significant volumes of investment on the long-term financial sustainability of TSOs, - To reflect on the potential for a set of alternative financing strategies to dampen the impact on costs for network users.

EIB hoax - coal down award [full video]
A European Investment Bank (EIB) that would cease lending to coal projects and eventually all fossil fuels is still a dream. However we imagined it for one day and the effects would be tremendous. The EIB could play a leading role in decarbonising Europe's energy infrastructure, it would be applauded by EU citizens and receive rewards from organisations like ours. That's what we wanted to show with our day of action during the Bank's annual press conference. All we call for is EU public bank that acts with the future in mind by taking the EU 2050 decarbonisation targets into account. Let's hope it will when it reviews its energy policy later on this year. More on www.counterbalance-eib.org

What regulatory frame to implement the EU infrastructure package? | Jean-Michel Glachant
Author: Jean-Michel Glachant (Director Florence School of Regulation / Holder Loyola de Palacio Chair -- European University Institute) Category: Conference speech Date of release: February 2013 This is a recording of speech of Jean-Michel Glachant at a high-level event in Dublin welcoming the Irish Presidency of the EU discussing "The Future of Energy Infrastructure Development in Europe", organized by IIEA on 26. February 2013. The event explored how the EU will deliver the energy infrastructure it needs to 2020 and beyond. In particular, it focused on the important new EU Energy Infrastructure Regulation, due for formal approval on 22 February 2013. This Regulation is the means of accessing the Connecting Europe Facility and sharing the costs of infrastructure investment between Member States. In his speech, Jean-Michel Glachant looks at challenges of the massive wave of investment needed to finance a European energy infrastructure. He summarises these challenges in four concepts: coordination, economic efficiency, financing and redistribution.

Why Luxembourg is the best place to invest offshore from
In simple terms, a UCITS is a mutual fund based in the European Union. UCITS stands for "Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities" and UCITS funds can be sold to any investor within the European Union under a harmonised regulatory regime. They have a strong brand identity across Europe, Asia and South America and are distributed for sale in over fifty countries as they have transparent, tried and tested regulation. Since 1985 Luxembourg have become the leader in UCITs. At the London G20 summit on 2 April 2009, G20 countries agreed to define a blacklist for tax havens. Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker criticised that list, stating that it has "no credibility", for failing to include various states of the U.S.A. which provide incorporation infrastructure which are indistinguishable from the aspects of pure tax havens to which the G20 object. As of 2012, 89 countries including LUXEMBOURG have implemented reforms sufficient to be listed on the OECD's white list. Learn more at http://www.investoffshore.com

Paul Davies, a PwC partner with nearly 30 years' experience in the field, half of it in banking, will paint a picture of "Son of PFI." His recent experience covers massive projects like the M25 and London underground extensions, the Ministry of Defence's main building and its Allenby Barracks, and his latest, The Green Deal Finance Company, Britain's biggest home improvement plan since the end of the Second World War.

The president of the European Parliament Martin Schulz has described it as possibly the biggest policy failure since the euro crisis erupted four years ago, but Germany's Wolfgang Schaeuble was upbeat. He said: "All the European banks, as we've been repeatedly reassured by the European Central Bank, are now much better capitalised than before. Now, we have clear bail-in rules - [with investors contributing ahead of governments] - and I think that what we are building up here is the right contribution to further stabilising financial markets." Schaeuble appeared at a joint news conference in Paris with his French counterpart. He was asked if the backstop that had been agreed was sufficient to assure savers and markets. Schaeuble replied: "We have reached a result which is convincing." French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said the deal would yield a credible joint backstop after a long transition period. In the negotiations Germany blocked the hopes of France, Spain and Italy, that eurozone money would be used directly for bank clean-ups. Still Sarah Hewin, Head of Research at Standard Chartered, said it was an achievement to get anything agreed: "Looking back, a month or so ago it seemed unlikely that they would be able to reach an agreement before the end of the year. Clearly it's a compromise between what Germany wanted and what the European Central Bank and European Commission wanted. But overall I think we're in a positive place here."

Invest in Kosovo - Reasons to Invest in Kosovo
http://invest-in-kosovo.blogspot.com/ Central location in the region Being located in the heart of the Balkans, Kosovo's capital Prishtina is in one hour driving distance to any neighbouring country. Ongoing infrastructure projects include modern highway connections to Albania, Serbia and Macedonia. By the end of 2009 the driving distance to the Albanian Port of Durres will be reduced to 3 hours. In addition, Prishtina International Airport offers air connections to main European capitals. Young, educated, multilingual and dynamic population Kosovo has the youngest population in Europe. Due to the long international presence, English is just short of an official language. App. 40.000 students at the state and numerous private universities and many Kosovars who have lived and studied abroad are currently guarantying a sufficient stream of highly educated labour. Competitive, flexible and well skilled labour force Average gross wage in Kosovo is less than 250 EUR. Wages in Kosovo are unburdened by costly social contributions, unlike those in the countries of the region. Through engaging in smaller workshops and private businesses during the 1990s and through vocational training programs established in the last 10 years, Kosovars have gained skills, which are highly appreciated by foreign investors. Modern Telecommunications Kosovo offers modern telecommunication systems. There are 3 fixed telephony operators and 2 mobile telephony operators, offering the latest and most modern technologies, including VoIP, GPRS, etc. Three main internet service providers offer stable and broadband Internet, including DSL, Wireless, and Cable, with lower prices than in any other European Country. Modern, EU-compatible legislation Since 1999 Kosovo's legal system has been re-built and is now completely compatible with the EU legislation. Kosovo has also installed the International Standards for Financial Reporting. In addition, Kosovo's legislation offers "national treatment" for foreign investors. The legislation in Kosovo is also available in English. Sound banking system Kosovo's financial sector has been built on completely new foundations. The Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo is an independent body, which regulates and supervises the Kosovo financial market. There are eight licensed banks, two pension funds, 19 other financial intermediaries, 27 financial auxiliaries and ten insurance companies in Kosovo. Six out of eight banks in Kosovo are foreign-owned. Currency: EURO Euro is the official currency in Kosovo, eliminating this way the currency and exchange rate risk. The Euro gave Kosovo a considerable advantage over its competitors in the region by making it more attractive to foreign investment and by bringing financial and macroeconomic stability. It also enabled Kosovo to offer the lowest transaction costs in the region. Free access to EU-market, US-market and CEFTA members market Kosovo derives three major benefits from the trade liberalisation, namely improved export possibilities, a better investment environment and stable relations with its neighbours. Kosovo is a member of CEFTA and it also benefits from non-reciprocal, customs-free access to the EU market based on the EU Autonomous Trade Preference (ATP) Regime. Kosovo also enjoys a free acess to the US-market. http://invest-in-kosovo.blogspot.com/ Great investment opportunities Kosovo is well endowed with natural resources and agricultural land. Sectors of agriculture, food processing, construction, textile, IT, automotive components and energy and mining offer the most opportunities for foreign investors. An interesting opportunity, having in mind the young, multilingual and educated population, is also IT-outsourcing. Low tax burden and modern business support institutions Kosovo has a simple and straightforward tax system. The tax burden is very low:: Personal Income Tax 0-10 % VAT 16 % Corporate Income Tax 10% Mandatory contributions for employees only 5% of gross salaries No other country of the SEE can outperform Kosovo in its ability to allow the businesses to enter the market. The Investment Promotion Agency of Kosovo (IPAK) and its office in Vienna offer a whole range of freeof- charge services for foreign investors. P.S.

Gapstow Capital Partners: A broader definition of credit opportunities
Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Chris Acito is the Founder, CEO and CIO of Gapstow Capital Partners, a $700 million multi-manager alternative investment firm focusing on opportunities in the public and private global credit markets. In this Opalesque.TV interview, Chris discusses how many investors, even alternative investors, historically have had a very narrow view of the asset class, a definition synonymous with distressed corporate debt and high yield. Gapstow defines credit more broadly to include corporate credit, structured credit, mortgage securities, whole loans, real estate debt, and bank hybrid investments. Chris points out that credit is typically only a small percentage of institutional investor portfolios - usually less than 10% of their overall portfolio. Given its low to moderate correlation to equities and its diverse set of alternative risk exposures, Chris sees an opportunity to educate investors on the benefits of investing in a broader credit universe. Learn about the following: A broader definition of the credit universe including: Corporate Credit Household/Consumer Credit Commercial Real Estate Bank Investments The rationale for increasing the allocation to credit in an institutional portfolio A comparison of the risks associated with credit investing and fixed income investing Valuing credit investments - One solution is to align interests for all parties The opportunities in niche RMBS strategies, community bank equity, Trust Preferred CDOs, and CLO equity The ability to create portfolios that are largely floating rate in format given the potential for an increase in interest rates in the near future Chris is Gapstow's Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. Chris has responsibility for managing the overall business, as well as investing each of the Gapstow funds. Prior to founding Gapstow in 2009, Chris was the Global Chief Operating Officer for Investcorp's Hedge Fund Group, which at its peak allocated nearly $8.5 billion in client and proprietary capital, across both multi-manager and single-manager hedge funds. In addition to managing a global infrastructure (New York, London, and Bahrain), Chris was responsible for creating both HFG's US-European capital raising efforts and its hedge fund seeding capability, which included nearly $2.5 billion in assets under management across eight managers. Prior to Investcorp, Chris enjoyed a ten-year career as a management consultant, first with Booz-Allen & Hamilton's Banking & Capital Markets practice, then later branching off to found Casey, Quirk, & Acito, a specialist firm focusing exclusively on the global investment management industry. Chris began his career as an economist. He served on the President's Council of Economic Advisers in both the Bush and Clinton administrations, where his areas of expertise were financial markets and macroeconomic policy. He was also the Managing Director of the Center for Population Economics, a Chicago-based group dedicated to researching issues in health economics under the direction of Noble Prize winner Robert W. Fogel. Chris holds a B.A. in Economics from Duke University and an M.A. from the University of Chicago, and is currently the Chair of the Board of Trustees for The Peddie School in Hightstown, New Jersey.
