Infrastructure finance due diligence

We provide technical and commercial due diligence services for sponsors, lenders and investors. We assess the risk of their intended actions and advise on appropriate mitigation measures to enable them to carry out their actions in an informed manner.

By partnering with Mott MacDonald, the world’s leading technical advisor for private finance projects, our members will benefit from the consultancy’s extensive and varied technical and management expertise.

Pensions Management Institute

We tailor our approach for each situation - typical applications include:

  • Infrastructure investment due diligence
  • PPP/PFI lenders technical and commercial due diligence review
  • Pension portfolio investment appraisal
  • Mergers or acquisitions

Our due diligence advisory service achieves optimal risk analysis and value for money. We help clients better understand the commercial and technical risks in the transaction being examined and aim to ensure that these risks are placed with the party best placed to manage them. This equitable distribution facilitates financial closure and best value for our clients.

We undertake due diligence reviews at any point in the project cycle, including the operational phase for clients wishing to transfer ownership of an asset or assets.

With more than 20 years’ experience in PPP/PFI procurement in all sectors, we are providing these services to clients in all parts of the world.

We undertake due diligence on projects with standardised PFI/PPP contracts, as well as those with bespoke private finance contracts. We also have a strong track record in new cutting-edge forms of procurement such as the Scottish Non-Profit Distributing (NPD) and the English Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP) models.

Matrix approach to add value

Our comprehensive due diligence reviews encompass many aspects of a project including:

  • Project economics
  • Technical, environmental and social issues
  • Policy and regulatory advice
  • Commercial performance
  • Operational requirements
  • Residual life

We take a matrix approach to due diligence which we have created and refined over the last 20 years of providing this service for banks and investors. We categorise technical risks in context of the overall risk profile, making it easy for clients to take a view on the acceptability of each item.

We can then help stakeholders to identify which areas need to be developed to reduce risk and add value to the project.

We base our due diligence service on a thorough understanding of each project throughout the supply chain, from the project agreement provisions and primary sub-contracts, to Tier 2 technical guarantees.

Sustainability and community impacts

Sustainability is a key focus of our due diligence assessments. We review environmental statements and other relevant documentation to confirm that the project is a sustainable development.

Where relevant, we consider projects in light of the Equator Principles, the international framework for managing environmental and social risk in project finance.

We also approach due diligence with a view to understanding the needs of interested parties, to ensure that a project meets community needs.
