We will further expand our investments in infrastructure projects such as wind farms and solar parks in the coming years, placing particular emphasis on regional and segment diversification. The intention is to reinvest the funds generated in infrastructure," added Holger Kerzel, Global Head of Illiquid Assets at MEAG.
