Ep. 16 – ‘You never have perfect information, but do take action,’ says Richard Sem – Great Business Minds
Welcome to another episode of the Great Business Minds podcast, the definitive show for the business of digital infrastructure.
At Great Business Minds we would like to welcome our new sponsor for this year. GBM is now brought to you by Preiskel & Co, a leading award-winning City of London law firm, internationally recognised for its expertise in the digital infrastructure industry as well as the telecoms and tech sector work more broadly.

In this episode we get to talk to someone who is driving pure play investment into digital infrastructure across the board.
Richard Sem is a Partner and Head of Europe at global infrastructure fund Pantheon Infrastructure where he spearheads the Global Infrastructure and Real Assets Investment Team leading its European investment activity.
Founded in 1982, Pantheon has total assets under management and advice of $89 billion. Since 2009, the firm has completed more than 160 infrastructure investments alongside more than 50 asset sourcing partners. The global infrastructure investment team where our guest sits operates just south of $20 billion in assets.
Richard has 25 years of experience in infrastructure private equity, corporate finance and project finance at leading institutions including InfraRed Capital Partners, HSBC, ABN AMRO, and BNP Paribas.
Richard’s experience spans investing in primary, secondary, co-investments and direct investments across all infrastructure subsectors and global OECD markets.
He holds a Bachelor of Science and MBA from Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, and joins us from London.
