Challenges to the development of large infrastructure project
While many countries want to proceed with major infrastructure projects, the companies involved may come up against risk financing challenges. Because of the severe losses from natural catastrophes in 2017 and 2018, there may be more limited insurance coverage available for peak risks, especially in high hazard areas. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are also putting insurability for certain projects and industries increasingly in doubt.
Speakers representing different aspects of big project finance will discuss a variety of financing sources, including banks, public actors and specialist insurers, for investment, construction and operational risks.
