Urbanisation amplifies the interdependence between cities and regions. It is thus vital to support urban centers in meeting 21st century challenges related to climate change, mass migration and equitable growth. Efficient, inclusive and resilient infrastructure is needed to support communities as they transition to a low carbon economy.
We are committed to developing, financing and managing transformational projects that not only lead to capacity building, job creation, and economic development but that also help communities better withstand shocks.
Our model is based on aligning investor interests with those of public bodies and communities.
Meridiam’s long-term commitment to each project is part of its DNA, from upstream development right through to the end of the management period. Equipped with the trust of our investment partners who commit to our funds for terms of 20 years or more, our integrated development-investment-management approach is the driver of a virtuous circle which, through the alignment of interests, ensures a consistent quality of service for the public body and attractive returns over time.
Contributing to the sustainable development of a town, region or country requires the integration of social and environmental standards in every public investment project.
We believe that ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) assessment should be more than a mere check box in our analysis. Instead, this lies at the heart of every project we analyze, as we strive to serve and build sustainable communities for the long-run.
Combining technical expertise with active asset management
Developing and managing new infrastructure projects (“greenfield”) is a complex undertaking, which requires a multi-disciplinary team able to bring an integrated approach. A project is dreamt at inception, takes shape at the design phase, becomes real during construction, and operates through the concession period that can be upwards of 30, 40 even 50 years. What differentiates us from other investment funds is our unique blend of financial, engineering and management background, whose technical expertise and patient philosophy ensures that only the best, most impactful projects come to life.
