“A combined public and private sector culture serving the community”.
Meridiam successfully combines two cultures:
A public sector culture, through an investment philosophy aligned with that of the public authorities.
A private sector culture, through a business model enabling Meridiam to remain proactive, independent and innovative.
Meridiam has a strong network of relationships with local stakeholders across the countries and regions in which it operates. Meridiam is able to act as an interface between the public and private sectors, encouraging each side to collaborate around a common view.
Meridiam is not just a financial partner; it is also a partner of choice for industrial companies and public authorities. Meridiam delivers the financing of a project by matching the needs and expectations of all parties involved.
Meridiam selects experienced and reliable industrial partners, including global leaders in the construction and engineering fields, and also works with large pools of commercial banks, drawing on its strong relationship with Crédit Agricole.
Meridiam believes that its investment should not be solely limited to a financial interest. Meridiam’s participation in projects from inception through to implementation provides a guarantee of generating sustainable value over the long term.
When managing its assets, Meridiam:
Actively participates in the Board of Directors of the project companies.
Is involved in selecting the management of the companies from the outset of the project.
Closely monitors the operations and operator in order to maximize performance.
