Vincent Gilles joined Credit Suisse in 2010 to lead the European and Global utility research franchise. He has been covering the utility and infrastructure sector for 26 years both on the buy and sell side, including a five-year stint in infrastructure PE. Vincent and his team have been constantly top-rated by investors and companies in the past. In the past few years, they have increasingly focussed on the significant transformation moves the sector is going through world-wide with the advent of cheap renewables and the reform of markets to accommodate the rise of decentralised power. He is still closely involved with the EU Energy DG having worked there in the early 90s.
