Covers how large infrastructure projects are financed in over 35 jurisdictions. Large infrastructure projects often require enormous sums of money and involvement from the government, as well as investment from overseas. This guide deals with how such projects are financed and how this financing is structured between the parties, the sorts of risks that a jurisdiction may have (for example, corruption, political instability) as well as how these risks can be mitigated through insurance. Areas covered include market overview, regulatory framework and regulatory considerations; methods for structuring the financing; corporate vehicles; forms of security; contractual protections; insurance arrangements; typical risks; use of PPPs or PFIs; social, ethical and environmental issues; ownership rights to natural resources and minerals; foreign investment; choice of law and jurisdiction; and recent developments and reform.
  • Each chapter has the same reader friendly Q&A structure covering core areas of law as it is applied in each jurisdiction allowing easy cross-jurisdictional analysis
  • Includes contributions from leading practitioners who are experts in the field of project finance:
  • Point of reference for global practitioners, legal advisors and corporate counsel
  • In-depth analysis of the regulatory and structuring issues and solutions often encountered in project finance transactions
