BlackRock has had a strong presence in the region for many years as the leading asset manager in traded funds and investment mandates. Recently, it expanded its capabilities into real assets with the acquisition of the leading private equity infrastructure investment platform in Mexico.
Nick Davies, Chairman, OneNorth Energy
One North Energy’s priorities are to complete our fund raising activities and to secure as many quality producing oil and gas assets as we can during the oil price trough. We would prefer to use our contacts and experience in the industry to secure direct negotiation transactions rather than getting involved in open tenders.
Aaron Howell, Managing Director, Head of Oil & Gas, Asia, Rothschild
We have always taken a long-term view of our client needs; evolving their strategy and enabling its execution, we do not focus on quarterly or annual deal related metrics. As the macro-environment has moved, we have moved with it, however our core focus of impartially advising our clients over the long-term has not changed.
Nicolas Tardieu, Managing Director, Oil & Gas, Scotiabank
Increased volatility in crude oil price, slower oil demand growth, lesser risk appetite from capital provider for the sector.
