This is the issue addressed by Vittorio Massone, a manager expert in digital strategies and the Executive Director and Vice President of Alkemy S.p.A. since February 2020.

This transformation is at the beginning of a new debut: the revolution has not ended its drive and will bring changes in all sectors within the next 20 years. As explained by Vittorio Massone, the digital evolution will touch the minimum scale, and strategic factors related to the cost structure will assume a primary value: the reference is to the investments in R&D, in technology and in the control of patents and data. The manager continues his intervention by focusing on the specific situation of the Italian context, which shows that very few companies in the unregulated sectors have the scale necessary to be competitive in the market. The trend regarding investments is not encouraging and, as Vittorio Massone suggests, it is necessary to speed up the rate of innovation of the product and all the services connected to it. Innovation, he concludes, should be a guiding value in the production processes, as well as in the management of the distribution chain and operations: this would allow to reap the benefits of the digital transformation and improve the level of service to customer, while, at the same time, reducing cost-to-serve.

Pompeo Pontone’s article on Covid-19 and Data Science

How to master data set and data structures to perform analysis? This is the issue addressed by Pompeo Pontone, a Professional Investor and expert in Data Science and FinTech, in the light of the extraordinary emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In his article published on the official website, Pompeo Pontone discusses about the connection between Covid-19 and Data Science, the latter being one of his field of specialization together with Investment Management, Quantitative Finance and Derivatives Trading, among the others. "Data Scientists know how crucial is to master data set and data structures in order to perform any required analysis", the expert says, pointing out that, when dealing with data analysis, the crisis caused by Covid-19 is not something different than any other issue under the lens of Data Science. "There is no difference in dealing with Covid-19 pandemic"Pompeo Pontone explains, "Data set, data formation and data structures are being created and will constitute the base of the pandemic analysis". His article continues by addressing another crucial aspect, that is the one of reliability: the expert writes, indeed, "I personally fear that, unless data consistency is guaranteed among different countries and territories, sample hypothesis testing results will not be reliable enough".

Machine learning algorithms, Pompeo Pontone explains the usefulness of Decision Trees

Pompeo Pontone is a Professional Investment Specialist and Financial Consultant with more than 25 years of experience gained in the field. As an expert in Data Science, FinTech and Private Equity, he has recently dealt with the subject of Decision Trees in Data Science.

Decision Trees explained by Pompeo Pontone

Currently working in the fields of Quantitative Finance, Derivatives Trading, FinTech, Data Science, and Private Equity, Pompeo Pontone explains why Decision Trees are so important within Data Science: "Decision trees (DTs) are among the most versatile class of machine learning algorithm", he writes, "they're particularly useful as the basic classifier and random forests which are among the most powerful class of machine learning algorithm". As pointed out by the Investment Consultant and Specialist, indeed, a decision tree is a non-parametric supervised learning algorithm used for classification and regression problems. His article underlines that the goal of Decision Trees "is to create a model that predicts the value of a target variable by learning simple decision rules inferred from the data features", expert says, adding that such methods are "capable of handling both classification and regression tasks and they're able to deal with complex nonlinear datasets". Pompeo Pontone continues his article by explaining another useful feature of Decision Trees, which are also called "white-box models", as they are easy to interpret: "This is because they're based on a hierarchy of simple classification rules which are easily visualized", he writes, and "this is an opposition to black-box models like deep neural networks. In black-box models, decisions are made in a process which is far more opaque". The Investor and Investment Specialist concludes his article by adding that "with Decision Trees, we can easily traverse the tree by eye and see the criteria for how the decisions are made".

Milan, 8 November 2018. Today marked the traditional F2i Investor Day, a periodic encounter between F2i management and portfolio companies, on the one hand, and shareholders of the asset management company, together with investors, on the other.
During the event, F2i announced the recent final close of F2i's Third Fund , that reached 3.6 billion euros, 600 million euros higher than the target set in December 2017, at the time of the launch of the Fund.
This excellent result, and the short amount of time needed to complete the fund raise, was made possible by existing investors (F2i's First and Second Funds had raised 1.8 billion and 1.25 billion euros, respectively), as well as a significant contribution from new investors. Subscribers to F2i's Third Fund include pension funds, sovereign funds, bank foundations, insurance companies and asset managers, with Italian and international investors (from Europe, Asia and North America) contributing in equal measure to the success of the fundraising effort.
The Third Fund - with a 12-year duration - started operating with an impressive portfolio inherited from the merger with F2i's First Fund, including airports, natural-gas networks, waterworks and photovoltaic plants.
Since December 2017, F2i has already concluded for its Third Fund transactions aimed at consolidating the existing holdings: new acquisitions in the photovoltaic sector have made possible the creation of one of the leading groups in Europe, with an installed power capacity of more than 800 MW, while the airport portfolio has been reinforced through the acquisition of additional minority stakes in the companies that manage the airports of Milan, Naples and Turin.
In addition, the Third Fund recently acquired a controlling interest in EI Towers, Italy's leading independent operator of TLC and broadcast towers. This investment will serve as a major industrial platform for the consolidation of the sector currently underway.

"We are pleased to announce the final close of our Third Fund, marking the culmination of a highly ambitious project whose goal was to raise new capital, both Italian and foreign, in order to continue developing, in Italy, the major infrastructural platforms already in the portfolio, while undertaking new initiatives in sectors of strategic importance to the country," stated the CEO of F2i, Renato Ravanelli.

F2i’s Third Fund results: Renato Ravanelli expressed great satisfaction

Good news for F2i - Fondi Italiani per le Infrastrutture , which reaches a better goal than expected: the gathering of the fundraising in the Third Fund will be raised to 3.6 billion euros

F2i - Italian funds for infrastructures: new results for its Third Fund. Renato Ravanelli's statements

F2iF2i - Fondi Italiani per le Infrastrutture reached an unexpected, yet fulfilling goal with its Third Fund launched in 2017. As Chief Executive Officer Renato Ravanelli stated, the target of the Third Fund has been raised from 3.3 to 3.6 billion. As per CEO's statement, this fundraising could reach a higher goal, that Renato Ravanelli identified in 4 billion euros. F2i's choice appears to be, instead, to "keep a balance between our portfolio and fresh resources." What especially pleases CEO Renato Ravanelli is the response the company received from both domestic and international investors. An important sign of this continued support has been shown in December, when foreign LPs, that already supported F2i's First Fund, demonstrated further trust with another deposit of a total amount of 1.74 billion euros. Another 1.4 billion euros were gathered by F2i from international and domestic sovereign and pension funds, as well as asset management firms and insurance companies. Among the investments F2i is looking at, thanks to this fundraisings, appears the offer that the Renato Ravanelli guided company submitted for Persidera, that is an Italian digital TV services provider, which operates in joint with RaiWay. This purchase, indeed, would see both F2i and RaiWay share the frequency rights and network infrastructure of Persidera, as per the terms of the bid. This would mean that both companies "will contextually subscribe a long-term agreement for the supply of broadcasting services". No comments have been recorded from Renato Ravanelli about price details. The CEO stated "the bid [of F2i and Raiway] includes earn-out figures and further bonuses that may match vendors expectations. This transaction has a value lower than our usual standards, but it would allow F2i to set a footprint in a sector that is going towards a wave of consolidation in Italy and in Europe", confirming the strategic value of this asset. One last acquisition F2i's CEO is willing to discuss is the one about the stake owned by Milan municipality airports' management company SEA, whose worth is reported to be 1 billion euros.

F2i’s new fund, Third Fund aims at 3 billion euros

Italy's hugest closed-end fund, F2i, is set to launch in 2017 Fund III, which has a gathering aim of 3 billion euros and a global approach. Great interest coming from international funds.

F2i Italian fund raises Fund III: international interest

F2i - Fondi italiani per le infrastruttureItalian fund F2i is expected to launch in 2017 its new Fund III, which aims to raise funds to invest in infrastructures globally. The goal is set to 3 billion euros, which would be the hugest fundraising ever launched by an Italian investment company. As one of the sources stated, one of F2i's interlocutors, indeed, would be Singapore's sovereign wealth fund GIC. This kind of operation seems to be interesting to a global level, in particular overseas: many international funds have allocated a huge budget to be invested in infrastructures, such as, for example, Brookfield Asset Management and Global Infrastructure Partners. Both of these heavyweight U.S. funds gathered a great amount, in economic terms, in order to play investments in the infrastructure field. They are, however, not the only ones, as U.S. private equity firm Blackstone, as well as the greatest sovereign fund in Saudi Arabia, have plans to allocate the amount of 40 billion dollars for infrastructure projects. What F2i plans to do is to buy out investors from Fund I using the amount of 1.5 billion euros, so that strategic assets will be able to be transferred to Fund III. Fund I was launched in 2007 and it raised an amount of 1.8 billion and it is now lowered with the option for its investors to be paid off, so that they can newly invest in the brand new Fund III. This operation is meant to maintain the investments active towards the major companies belonging to the firm guided by Renato Ravanelli, such as 2i Aeroporti, F2i's holding operating in the airport sector. One further decision F2i made is not to alter Fund II, as it is the major stakeholder in "E2i Energie Speciali", the company operating in renewable energy field. The amount that this fund gathered in 2015 is of 1.2 billion euros, but it still has to be completely deployed. Foreign interest for Italian infrastructure sector comes not only from overseas, but also from inside Europe: German insurance company Allianz was one of the investors taking a stake in the motorway branch of Atlantia in 2017. Same thing for Singapore's sovereign fund GIC: interested in F2i's Fund III, this fund has already closed some important property deals on the Italian territory, including the complete acquisition of the Centre-Italy mall called "RomaEst Shopping Centre". It also acquired a huge number of logistic centres, as planned in its 2.4 billion euros purchase strategy regarding the European logistics property called "P3 Logistic Parks".

Profiling F2i Italian fund

Created in 2007, F2i - Italian funds for infrastructure, is the major Italian closed-end fund and one of the biggest among Europe. The Savings Managing Society (SGR) can count on important partnerships, such as credit institutes, institutions, banking foundations, public welfare funds, as well as international banks. The firm's mission is to improve Italian infrastructural asset, so that it could compete with European and international standards. The branches F2i looks at are different: transportation infrastructures, airports, telecommunications and logical networks, water and gas distibution, social infrastructures and waste management. Renato Ravanelli is the current CEO, appointed in 2014. In 2007 F2i launched Fund I, in 2012 Fund II. A Third Fund is expected to be launched in 2017.
