C-Matrix Partner, Vicki Tanner, recently moderated a webinar with Partners Group, the Swiss-based firm with USD 145 billion in assets under management on behalf of clients in private equity, private infrastructure, private real estate and private debt. The event was organised by the Australian Swiss Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the success of the Murra Warra ll Wind Farm project in Australia.
Investing in renewable energy
On behalf of their clients, Partners Group has invested over AUD 180 million in this project, which is their sixth utility-scale renewable project in Australia and will no doubt play a key role in Australia’s renewable energy future.
The deal team from this forward-thinking Swiss-based firm summarised the top three success factors for such projects as:
Communications: e.g. with the local community and regulators.
Reputation: This refers to your profile amongst key stakeholders and decision-makers to consistently deliver the optimal results.
A stable project team: Partners Group has worked with the same team and partners across all projects. As a result, they continually achieve economies of skill and scale while building a terrific team spirit.
These critical success factors resonated with the C-Matrix Team based on our experience working with clients on major transactions and developments. They include major M&A, restructuring, transformation and construction projects where we have designed and implemented strategic communications programmes focussed on key stakeholders such as employees, residents, regulators, media and investors. The same team has worked with our clients for many years.
