EIG invests exclusively in energy, energy-related infrastructure and resource projects and companies. EIG's two Principals and 19 Managing Directors collectively have over 440 years of energy investing experience and our investment team is comprised of industry veterans with technical backgrounds, as well as operating and finance experience.
We have substantial in–house technical expertise. Among the EIG investment professionals, there are 14 engineers, each of whom on average has approximately 21 years of industry experience. We believe that our in-house technical capabilities give us the ability to respond quickly to complex investment opportunities where we can work side-by-side with potential partner companies, making our own independent assessment of the technical merits of a project without undue reliance on third-party consultants. This in-house technical capability also enables our investment teams to work closely with our portfolio investments as projects develop, contributing insight but also responding quickly and intelligently as construction or development issues arise.
EIG believes there are current sector trends in the energy markets that will require massive amounts of capital to be deployed in the sector over the next 15-20 years. We remain abreast of the latest technologies, trends, and opportunities. In addition to our capital, EIG’s senior investment professionals can bring to bear their combined experience and industry contacts to support your strategic growth initiatives. These relationships include industry veterans, operating companies, service providers, institutional investors, investment banks, insurance companies and commercial banks.
