The route will be managed under the name Europe Middle-East India Connect 1 (EMIC-1) by Aqua Comms, the subsea fibre operator acquired by D9 earlier this year.

"This investment reaffirms D9’s guiding principle: to improve digital infrastructure globally and reduce the digital divide. We expect this innovative network to unlock further digital infrastructure opportunities," head of digital infrastructure at Triple Point, Thor Johnsen, said.

More broadly, the portfolio is seeking to fund scalable technologies that include subsea fibre, data centres, terrestrial fibre, tower infrastructure and small cell networks (including 5G).

HSBC Asset Management
has launched the HSBC GIF Global Equity Sustainable Healthcare Fund, its first healthcare fund focused on sustainability and impact.

The fund will be co-managed by Dr Nathalie Flury and D Michael Schröter, co-heads of sustainable healthcare equity, who both joined HSBC AM in Switzerland earlier this year.

The fund will be fully ESG integrated and invest in a range of 35 to 40 companies with a bias towards mid-caps, long-term engagement, low turnover and active management interactions. These companies will have a clinical benefit and cost savings focus and will aim to make healthcare more affordable. There will be no fixed allocations across geographies, sub-subsectors, company stages, and/or profitability, HSBC AM said.
