4D Infrastructure has appointed Gaspard Bidot as investment analyst, responsible for stock selection and analysis with a focus on Europe.
Bidot would be based in Sydney and report to Sarah Shaw, chief investment officer (CIO).
Prior to joining 4D, Bidot worked for PwC’s corporate advisory division for nearly seven years, in France, Germany and Australia.
He was most recently the associate director at PwC’s infrastructure advisory division in Australia, which focused on infrastructure modelling, valuations and corporate advisory services.
Shaw said Bidot brought strong global expertise to 4D, having worked in five countries across three continents.
“There is a huge growing need for infrastructure investment globally, and Gaspard’s appointment will further enhance our coverage of our global investment universe,” Shaw said.
“We believe that infrastructure will be the key to economic prosperity in a post COVID-19 world, as infrastructure provides the basic services that are essential for communities to function, and for economies to prosper and grow.
“Factors such as population growth, energy transition and the emergence of the middle class are all driving the need for infrastructure investing.
“Gaspard’s experience in financial modelling and valuation will be central in identifying global infrastructure investment opportunities. In addition, he is actively involved in organisations fostering environmental change, social inclusion and diversity, all important to 4D’s wider remit.”
