Infrastructure & Project Finance
Infrastructure & Project Finance (I&PF) provides multi-product debt financing, financial advisory and risk management solutions for assets across the infrastructure and energy space, typically characterised by long term, stable cash flows, monopolistic or regulated positions or high barriers to entry. The team is a market leader in the field, being ranked the number 1 UK infrastructure lender, according to Inframation League Tables.
A product agnostic approach to transactions enables the team to adapt to the financing needs of the project with market-leading solutions. Our close partnership with Scottish Widows - Lloyds Banking Group’s life insurance and pension business - allows us to offer a unique proposition to clients with both bank debt as well as long-term institutional financing. The team also have significant debt advisory capabilities and are a leading underwriter and distributor of infrastructure transactions, providing through-the-cycle service for clients.
Primarily focussing on the UK and US market, I&PF provides solutions across the infrastructure, energy, transportation and digital sectors. Recent years have seen a distinct shift in the market with renewables and digital infrastructure emerging as key growth areas, driven by a combination of rapid technological change, progressive government policy, and the rise of the Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) agenda. Since 2018, we have financed over 15 UK renewable energy projects, providing green energy for over 5 million homes.
“The team is both product and asset agnostic in approach, supporting clients across greenfield and brownfield opportunities in economic, social, energy, power and digital infrastructure classes. Infrastructure as an asset class continues to be an important focus as an enabler of economic and societal development, and ties directly into the Bank’s core strategy.”
