Infrastructure Development and Financing

Home > Products > Infrastructure Development and Financing

The infrastructure gap in Africa requires financing, a lot of it, but ensuring the funds available goes further is a complex process and a balancing act that only the well guided public or private bodies can deliver as a cost-effective solution.

Delivering infrastructure projects, be it a privately financed or a budgetary financed one, is a complex process requiring expert advice.

Investors and funders need to know their money is being invested in projects that offer clear returns and predictable cash flows from appropriate structures.

Gone are the days when Governments and public bodies restrict themselves to their budgets, there is an increased need to develop funding and delivery strategies that attract investment in sustainable infrastructure to deliver economic and social growth. Sponsors, developers and operators, meanwhile, need to choose the right type of capital and financing model to ensure projects or corporate initiatives are affordable, provide value for money and offer a stable, lasting legacy.
