Market drivers and key trends

Lack of financing

There is often insufficient public financing for the new and expanded infrastructure needed. Public private partnerships (PPP) allow such projects to be financed.

Life-cycle perspective

Cost overruns in public projects increase interest in PPP solutions which have a life-cycle perspective in which resource-efficient, innovative and sustainable solutions are delivered on time and for a fixed total cost.

Attractive investment

Projects with stable, long cash flows with public counterparties offer attractive returns for investors.

PPP services

We are a world leader in public-private partnerships (PPPs), delivering real benefits around the world to the users of roads, hospitals, schools and power plants.
