Sustainable growth in Africa’s economy will protect the welfare of the current and future generations and facilitate the realising of our continent’s potential. Infrastructure is the catalyst driving this. Traditionally, infrastructure has been financed with public funds. In a changing world where public deficits and increased debt to GDP ratios, amongst other challenges, have become commonplace, the public sector is often unable to deliver on efficient infrastructure spend. This is where Bigen’s focus on innovative deal-structuring and financial modelling solutions can tailor blend finance solutions to achieve maximum development impact with an appropriate return on investment.
We provide bespoke infrastructure project finance and development finance solutions to clients and partners in the sectors that we serve. Bigen also invests in certain of our infrastructure projects through project preparation equity and, in some instances, minority project implementation equity. We focus on medium to large scale infrastructure projects with a significant development impact, still offering a fair return to investors. Our preferred sectors are Real Estate – Residential, Water, Renewable Energy, Transport, Health and Agriculture.
