It is with great pleasure that we reveal the winners of the IJInvestor Awards 2020, celebrating global achievements in infrastructure and energy M&A and fund activity.
IJInvestor Awards was launched in 2019 with a splendid event in the Banqueting Hall in Westminster, drawing together the great and good of the infra fund and M&A community to recognise their efforts.
This year – while we have been unable to stage an awards night due to the coronavirus pandemic – we are restricted to writing about them, having published the winners earlier today in the winter issue of the IJGlobal Magazine.

Leisurely read through our feature with the Outstanding Individual – Steven Sonnenstein – and admire his vision, possibly wondering why you never had the gumption to create a whole new infrastructure sub-sector for investment.
And then raise a glass to Jemima Atkins at AllianzGI who – at 26 – has already made her presence felt (no Christmas joke there) in the infrastructure community where her mindset is clearly ahead of the game, setting the scene for a whole new way of thinking when it comes to ESG.
I total we have 63 winners for you to trawl through. Yes, I know – that’s a lot. We took the view that this year (the grimmest I can recall since being a 7-year-old at boarding school) the industry needed something to celebrate.
As such, we sliced and diced like mad – but only where we had adequate competition – and with the support of our independent panel of judges who must be thanked for their efforts over the course of three judging sessions.
