Infrastructure finance

We were involved in the very first public private partnership (PPP) developments in France. Over the years, we have played a key role in more than 100 infrastructure finance projects in sectors such as education, the built environment, energy, transport, water and digital infrastructure.

In recent years we’ve seen dramatic changes to the funding and financing of infrastructure in France, and around the world. As the acknowledged global leader in infrastructure finance, our advice helps clients and partners to fully evaluate opportunities, prioritise efforts, reduce risk and make informed investment decisions.

We’re able to support public and private sector clients from inception to financial close, to help them unlock the potential offered by project or corporate infrastructure finance. The services we deliver cover all aspects related to project finance, public finance, PPP arrangements, infrastructure merger and acquisition, due diligence, technical audit, environmental and social audit, sustainable development, construction monitoring, operation and maintenance, and asset management.

International development

Good governance is key to delivering the high-quality infrastructure that can help generate economic growth and improve wellbeing and resilience. Done well, it also addresses the complex challenges new economies tend to face, such as population growth, urbanisation and climate change.

Our commitment is to the people who should ultimately benefit from what is designed and delivered, so we work closely with governments and international institutions to get the very best out of infrastructure potential and to improve the quality of life for all. Our work is founded on a deep understanding of local needs and opportunities, combined with the skills and resources to implement sustainable solutions to alleviate poverty, drive economic growth, improve health and education, and increase social inclusion.

Our specialists lead many technical assistance missions and work closely with the ultimate beneficiaries on all types of infrastructure – from renewable energy and clean water projects, to transport schemes and facilities, to hospitals, schools and housing.
