How Raphaël is building a better working world

“The financing of clean energy projects will play a major role in enabling the energy transition globally, but it’s important for investors to identify the right projects that align with their own ambitions. I enjoy helping organizations develop a renewable energy roadmap and then supporting them as they implement it — advising on all aspects of projects, from identifying opportunities and assessing market entry strategies, right through to M&A. In a complex market, having the insight to make smarter decisions faster can make all the difference to success.”
