PPP Risk Allocation
PPP Risk Allocation
A searchable guide on typical risk allocation in PPP transactions
PPP Risk Allocation
Allocating Risks in Public-Private Partnership Contracts.

Risk allocation is at the centre of every PPP transaction, and a deep understanding of the risk allocation arrangements is a precondition to the drafting of every PPP agreement. Search below for guidance on typical risk allocation arrangements between public and private sectors in PPP transactions.

PPP Risk Allocation Tool

As part of its leading practices mandate, the GI Hub developed a set of annotated risk allocation matrices for PPP transactions, across the transport, energy and water and waste sectors. The PPP Risk Allocation Tool should be used to provide additional guidance to countries that wish to develop a programme of bankable PPP transactions.

Investor Survey Reports
Investor Survey Reports
EDHEC/ GI Hub Annual Global Infrastructure Investor Surveys
Investor Survey Reports 2016

GI Hub and EDHECinfra global investor study 2016.

The 2016 study found that investors are increasingly comfortable with long investment periods and less concerned about the lack of liquidity associated with infrastructure projects, with 81 per cent of respondents expecting to keep investments for at least 10 years. However, the study pinpointed rising concerns about a shortage of bankable infrastructure opportunities.

Investor Survey Reports 2017

More than 185 infrastructure investors and advisors took part in the survey, representing USD7 trillion in assets under management, which accounts for 10% of global assets under management.

PPP Contract Management
PPP Contract Management
Practical guidance on successful contract management post financial close.
PPP Contract Management report

A great deal of attention is paid to the preparation, procurement and negotiation processes of PPPs. However, this is only the start of delivering a successful project, and in many ways the most important work begins after financial close, during construction and operations, to ensure that the public is receiving the full benefit of the infrastructure services.

PPP Contract Management tool

The reference tool is informed by an in-depth analysis of 250 PPP projects globally that reached financial close between 2005 and 2015 (inclusive) to understand the core issues that arise during the construction and operations phases of a PPP project. From those projects, 25 projects were selected to develop detailed case
