Emerging countries desperately need infrastructure investment. But private lenders are often reluctant to step up because of the associated risks, especially of the political variety. This dense but informative World Economic Forum report analyzes how existing “risk mitigation instruments” could help correct the shortcomings in infrastructure finance and prod private sector lenders to help fund this critical gap. getAbstract recommends this revealing study to project financiers, investors and others interested in infrastructure finance.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why emerging countries need “risk mitigation instruments” to help fund their infrastructure projects,
- Why financial institutions are failing to meet the demand for these instruments and
- What providers can do to make them more available.
