Power and Infrastructure Finance
Wealth of experience, understanding risk and high degree of confidence
Australia's Economic & Social Infrastructure markets have grown rapidly in recent years. State and Federal governments have been enthusiastic adopters.
We advise you, as bidders, or lend on projects which include:
- Public sector accommodation
- Justice /custodial
- Transmission (power or telecoms)
- Affordable housing
The provision of ample, low-cost power is a critical requirement for a successful economy.
Investec draws on leading-edge expertise and experience across a broad range of power activities as varied as project finance, construction, working capital and late-stage development finance to provide a comprehensive service comprising:
- Provision and procurement of project finance debt
- Project advisory services
- Procurement and provision of project equity finance
- Ancillary services (bonding, working capital, FX and interest rate derivative lines)
Investec advises clients and arranges finance on all forms of infrastructure projects, spanning traditional availability-based economic and social projects, through to power projects with complex revenue streams.
Financing conventional and renewable energy projects
We are leading advisors, arrangers and providers of finance and ancillary services for renewable energy projects, being active in project finance, development finance, equity investment and acquisition financing. We are able to consider projects with unique risk profiles that other lenders may not. We can move quickly and with a high degree of confidence, and can consider investments at any point along the capital chain.
Investec's Power & Infrastructure Finance team also has extensive experience in the conventional power sector — our finance teams work closely with industry specialists to deliver outcomes that lead to long-lasting relationships with our clients.
Sharing the risk as arrangers, underwriters, developers and sponsors
PFI and PPP finance are seen as effective ways to upgrade infrastructure without unacceptable up-front costs. Investec works alongside sponsors, often sharing the bid risk.
We advise investors on the purchase, sale or refinancing of portfolios of infrastructure assets. We also work selectively as developers and sponsors of projects.
