Seamless transaction support for financial investors in infrastructure
Deloitte's global infrastructure investors team advises clients across the M&A and fund lifecycle, providing end-to-end support from the moment the funds are raised and opportunities are identified, to the conclusion of the transaction and onwards through the life of the asset.
Global interest in infrastructure investments is growing, thanks to the robust attributes of the asset class and the steady flow of new opportunities as governments explore alternatives to the traditional public provision of assets and services.
The challenge for infrastructure investors is to make the most of these opportunities by finding, structuring and closing the best deals in the most financial and tax efficient manner:
- Asset sourcing: finding appropriate assets in the countries of interest that fit their risk profile
- Transaction structuring: determining the most appropriate financing mechanism and efficient acquisition structure to deliver the highest possible returns
- Transaction support: accessing experts who can share the load, for example, by performing a thorough validation of the business case and conducting expert due diligence.
