Webinar: Credit Enhancement for Sustainable Infrastructure
Register for our webinar taking place April 2 at 9:00 a.m. CEST, where we will discuss credit enhancement solutions, trends and innovations.
The world needs about USD 3.7 trillion worth of investment in infrastructure every year, according to the Global Infrastructure Hub. Despite the cumulative efforts of governments, development finance institutions and the private sector, current spending on infrastructure still falls short by about USD 600 billion annually.
There is a pressing need for innovative solutions to de-risk projects in ways that increase credit quality, decrease default risk and decrease financing costs for infrastructure projects. This brings value for money for governments, citizens and investors alike.
Credit enhancement solutions improve the financial viability of infrastructure projects by transferring material infrastructure development and financing risks to credit-worthy third parties, such as multilateral development banks and pension funds, that are better placed to mitigate them.
During our webinar, we will discuss our online credit enhancement inventory and the growing number of instruments available. We will also explore our paper, Credit Enhancement for Sustainable Infrastructure.
