    Event Highlight

    The HKMA Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office (IFFO) held the second Investors and Debt Financing Roundtables on 25 - 26 October 2018, attended by more than 70 senior representatives from international long-term institutional investors, debt financiers, multilateral financial institutions, project owners and developers, and other key stakeholders in infrastructure financing.

    The main themes of this year’s Roundtables included collaboration and co-investment in emerging markets, and recent innovations to enhance bankability of infrastructure projects, making use of case studies. The Debt Financing Roundtable also discussed IFFO’s Reference Term Sheet for Non-Recourse Infrastructure Loans in Emerging Markets, which sets out the basic criteria and financiers’ preferences in respect of infrastructure loans’ legal framework, compliance with environmental, social and governance standards, risk mitigation measures and financial structuring. The term sheet is aimed to provide project owners and developers with a tool to make their projects more “bankable” and to facilitate private sector financing into projects in emerging markets.

    Panel Discussion
    Risk Mitigation in Infrastructure Financing

    Private sector capital is much needed for financing the infrastructure projects in Belt and Road countries given their vast development needs yet limited fiscal resources. However, participation of private sector capital in infrastructure financing in emerging economies have been limited due to various types of risks. Therefore, properly mitigating various forms of risks is most critical to improving the bankability of infrastructure projects.

    Comprising senior representatives from different key stakeholders in infrastructure financing, this panel will look into the risk factors that hinder private sector capital’s participation and more importantly, the corresponding mitigation solutions.
