Channeling Private Investment to Infrastructure: What can Multilateral Development Banks realistically do?

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted May 14, 2018 | Overseas Development Institute, Chris Humphrey

In the face of a financing gap in emerging and developing countries (EMDCs) of the order of $1 trillion per year between now and 2030, the public sector is not capable of undertaking the investments needed, on its own. Chris Humphrey suggests in this discussion paper for the Overseas Development Institute that private investors - notably the roughly $100 trillion in institutional investor resources - can help fill this gap, as infrastructure assets offer the opportunities these investors seek. The paper focuses on the role of multilateral development banks (MDBs) as key players in international development, and on three techniques oriented towards infrastructure: Debt finance: project bonds, securitisation of infrastructure loans; and syndication arrangements.
