The Infrastructure Finance Conference

9:00AM - 5:00PM Thursday
A conference on new financing models for those who want to finance infrastructure and for those who want to invest As European Governments try to revive their flagging economies and reduce unemployment, the European infrastructure market is at a cross-road. Banks have reduced their exposure to long term capital finance as the cost of debt has risen, but the bond market has been unable to step in to provide a solution without the security of the monolines. If acquisition deals, PPP projects and sponsor based deals are to be financed with affordable debt, the key stake holders have to invest their combined intellectual capital to come up with viable alternative solutions to long term project finance. The merits of Project Bonds, Debt infra funds and new models of risk transfer will be carefully analysed as part of the intellectual ‘heavy lifting’ to inter-connect Governments’ and Regulators’ desires with private sector reality, thereby meeting Europe’s Infrastructure needs in the 21st century. This Euromoney conference has been endorsed by the most influential public sector policy makers and the leading private sector organizations. By bringing together the private and public sectors Euromoney will produce a distinctive environment to consider how practical, innovative financing solutions can put the money next to the deal.
