Infrastructure: Project development
Enabling finance for infrastructure involves addressing constraints that inhibit investment. These constraints may be related to funding and/or financing. Funding refers to how to pay for the infrastructure, while financing refers to approaches to spreading out the funding of capital expenditure, including debt and equity investment.
We provide our clients with solutions to address funding and financing constraints, drawing on decades of experience analysing infrastructure markets. This includes offering commercial advice to developers and lenders, evaluating major interventions in the infrastructure space, and designing policies and interventions that tackle the most pressing issues facing governments and donors.
Our prestigious client list frequently includes the:
- National Infrastructure Commission (NIC);
- Global Infrastructure Hub;
- Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG);
- UK Department for International Development (DfID);
- World Bank Group;
- African Development Bank (AfDB); and many others.
