Port Infrastructure Finance

Port infrastructure investments are of vital importance to ports throughout the world. An analysis of alternative investments routes and strategies available to the major parties in the port industry is provided in this book. It functions as a guide to private debt funding of projects and expanding the investor base from loan providers to bond investors. As local port authorities and national/regional governments are no longer guaranteed as a source of sufficient funds to meet the ongoing port infrastructure investment need of major ports, it is increasingly crucial for port strategies to be broadened and alternative streams of investment to be secured. Insight into areas of port infrastructure finance across the main regions of Asia, Africa, the USA and Europe is provided here. Topics covered include the following: How to estimate future demand by way of forecasting; Public-private partnerships; Corporatization; Pricing mechanisms for syndicated loans; European port privatization; Finance strategies for ports in the USA, Africa and Asia; and a discussion of the investment strategies available to the major port players.
