The Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF) was established in 2014 as a G20 initiative to address a critical challenge to private investment in infrastructure in emerging markets and developing economies – lack of bankable infrastructure pipelines. Through its upstream advisory window, the GIF provides end-to-end advisory services to MDB partners and client governments; both funding and hands-on technical expertise. From the earliest project concept through to financial closing, the GIF provides the comprehensive design, appraisal, structuring, and transaction support needed to bring well-structured, bankable, sustainable infrastructure programs and projects to market that attract private investment. The GIF’s global collaboration platform includes a network of Advisory Partners. Among the GIF’s 50 Advisory Partners are pension funds, insurers, asset managers, and investment and commercial banks together representing more than US$13 trillion in assets under management. These Advisory Partners are called upon throughout the structuring process and during market soundings on GIF-supported infrastructure programs and projects to maximize attractiveness to private capital when investment opportunities are brought to market.
