Public-Private Project Finance Insurance

There are complex issues and concerns for public authorities, equity investors, lenders and contractors involved in privately funded public infrastructure projects, which is why specialist public-private project insurance is essential.

Our construction team has a wide-ranging and extensive sector understanding with a track record of success in providing insurance solutions for Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and public–private partnership (PPP) projects.

We have provided insurance solutions for successful public-private projects including schools, hospitals and medical facilities (including Local Improvement Finance Trusts – LIFTs), defence, accommodation, road, rail and light rail.

Our team also looks after a number of large portfolios for Privately Financed Infrastructure Assets. Each portfolio has a number of projects with a common investor and they are placed as one ‘group’ policy, which drives savings and provides commonality of covers across the investment assets.

In addition, we place particular emphasis on due diligence, and our independent team are adept at highlighting areas of risk and providing advice so that the debt is protected. Government authorities can be confident that taxpayers will see value for money.

No matter how complex a project, you will find that we are committed not only to ensuring the smooth running of insurance programmes but to facilitating successful outcomes for all.

We provide expert service for all clients over the following project stages:
  • Bid Stage – advice on contractual issues and establishing the insurance budget
  • Preferred Bidder – leading negotiations with Lender and Authority Insurance Advisors
  • Pre Financial Close – placing insurances in a competitive and compliant manner
  • Financial Close to Construction and Completion
  • Operation
