  • Home workers of the revolution

    Comrades, we gather here today to pay our respects to a way of life that passed earlier this year having lived to a ripe old age… and evolved into the equivalent of a cantankerous old git who’s long overdue a planting

  • University of Iowa Utility System, US

    Since financial close of the University of Iowa’s Utility System, the US P3 market has seen an aggressive uptick in colleges seeking private partners upgrade and operate cleaner, more efficient systems. Investors, meanwhile, see these transactions as both straightforward and lucrative

  • M&A in the Covid-19 epoch: APAC perspective

    Covid-19's impact appeared first in listed markets. Investors in late January were slowly pricing in the disruptions. Today, however, a popular Asia Pacific infrastructure index shows not a prolonged bloodbath but glimmers of a V-shaped recovery. IJGlobal reports on the pandemic's influence on origination, structuring and execution in the region's private market

  • Infra technology – donkeys led by geeks

    If the coronavirus lockdown has taught us anything, it is that we’re more reliant now on technology than we ever have been to fulfil our functions… and you better believe this reliance is going to grow in the coming months/years

  • Nobody does air-quotes any more

    There’s been a very quiet revolution over the last month that hardly anyone has noticed… because we’re all working from home. This seismic shift has been in the attitude to WFH, if you’ll excuse what appears to be teenage text-speak

  • Covid-19: Coping strategies for APAC

    During the first half of April (2020) IJGlobal has been asking 10 project finance lenders and advisers across Asia Pacific financial hubs Sydney and Singapore, Beijing and Hong Kong about the impacts of Covid-19

  • The great infra coverage up

    A significant date in the project finance calendar – 31 March – slid past this week with little remark, but as we cringe our way through the financial Armageddon that is coronavirus, it’s unlikely such popular interest payment and calculation dates will be treated in the future in quite so blasé a manner

  • ANI's president on the 5G road programme

    Stalled Fourth Generation (4G) road PPPs in Colombia will not delay the government launching the revamped 5G programme but the Covid-19 pandemic will, Manuel Felipe Gutiérrez, president of the national infrastructure agency (ANI), told IJGlobal in an exclusive interview

  • Living in unprecedented times

    At times like these – and there haven’t been any of those – it’s hard not to peer into the rear-view mirror to draw comparisons with yesteryear. However, that’s not possible in these unprecedented times… a term that’s already ageing badly… as coronavirus sweeps the planet

  • Hurontario Light Rail, Ontario

    Late last year the long awaited C$2.1 billion Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) development, that will cut the commute from Mississauga to Brampton by 10 minutes, reached financial close

  • Smart Cities – Fear and Loathing in Toronto

    The conservative – definitely lower case c – nature of Torontarians is being pushed to breaking point by ambitious plans to build a Smart City on their doorstep, giving the international market an ideal case study for the roll out of Intelligent Infrastructure… or possibly how not to do it

  • B-Day landings in World War 5G

    Wow. What a week to have lived through. It started with UK prime minister Boris Johnson revealing that Huawei would be involved in the roll-out of 5G in Britain – potentially leading to a schism with the US – and ended with Brexit… a rift with Europe

  • Tina River Hydro PPP, Solomon Islands

    Solomon Islands' 15MW Tina River Hydro high dam project was around 12 years in development, a saga not atypical for this technology. The financing of this, the nation's first PPP, changed course after global oil prices tanked in 2014 to 2015. A new concessional finance structure emerged, where government on-lends a single blended facility to the project company, complementing private sector equity
