BUILDING LONG-TERM INVESTOR PARTNERSHIPS FOR RUSSIA’S INFRASTRUCTURE AGENDA

09:45-11:00 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.2


Russia can fulfil all its infrastructure development needs only if it is able to attract sustained private sector investment in projects. However, most private sector funds require short- and medium-term returns, while many projects may require payback periods stretching decades. How can financiers, relevant government agencies, and the business sector better create new ways to put infrastructure funds to work while mitigating long-term risk and meeting investors’ expectations on returns?
