Capital requirements for megaprojects like civil infrastructure – airports, roads, mass transit such as rail transportation, and seaports; commercial and urban centers; water resources, waste processing, and other public works; wireline and wireless telecommunications; and power grid – are massive and fraught with highly uncertain financial returns.
Moreover, critical infrastructure projects are vulnerable to disruption from forces of nature, cultural and political discontinuity, environmental sustainability challenges, and other local conditions.
Yet by modernizing the underpinnings of an underserved community through access, mobility, and improved living conditions, socially entrepreneurial investors contribute to a better quality of life in the process of developing a project with the potential to stimulate a nation's market economy.
SDG helps clients advance systemic change. We harness infrastructure investment opportunities through quantifying risk/reward scenarios in view of the cost of capital. We add invaluable decision insights by developing a framework to validate growth rates and identify risks and ROIs relevant to specific projects, analyzing the intricacies of bidding on each project tranche as well as the overall project portfolio, balancing sources of revenue against downstream initiatives, assessing competitors’ qualifications, and structuring bids to maximize value to the client’s business.
