Infrastructure and project finance

Persone che discutono

It's our job to understand, advise on and solve the complexities involved in transactions, financing and policy at the interface between the public and private sectors. Whether it's raising funding for infrastructure projects or procuring private sector partners for our public sector clients, we deliver solutions that fund new roads, upgrade housing, build schools, modernise hospitals, improve rail services, and regenerate communities.

With an extensive track record spanning more than a decade of providing authoritative, innovative advice on a wide range of transactions worldwide, our global experience and local knowledge enable us to deliver the integrated strategies and services our clients require.

We work with governments, shaping their policy, developing frameworks and helping them to implement PPPs, industry by industry. We reconcile investors' need for profit with the requirements of Government for political and financial transparency. As an independent adviser, we engineer a truly competitive bidding process. And when advising private sector bidders, we help them to develop structures that allow them to access local and international funds.

On the infrastructure side, we are recognised by InfraNews as the number one global financial advisor in 2015 by the value of deals. We are also named by Thomson Reuters Project Finance International as the number one global and EMEA financial advisor in 2015 by the volume of infrastructure mandates won.
