How We Work

Guarantee Features

Our Philosophy

Sector Coverage

  • The InfraZamin Pakistan initiative comes together in the backdrop of financial markets primarily dominated by commercial bank lending, underdeveloped capital markets, public sector crowding out private sector borrowers and heavy reliance on external markets for financing infrastructure projects
  • Ability to issue partial credit guarantees, based on its current capitalization.
  • InfraZamin Pakistan can help corporates achieve:
    • Better financing terms inter-alia pricing (for both bank and capital market debt financing)
    • Enhanced per party bank limits
    • Longer tenors
    • Diversification of lender/investor base i.e. tapping other institutional investors and reduce reliance on bank financing

Project Commercial Viability

Project return must be commercially attractive and feasible in order to mobilize private capital via our credit guarantee structures.

Additionality

We aim to operate with an objective to improve structuring of project and financing terms. Our participation will lead to improving the bankability/invisibility of the transaction. InfraZamin Pakistan aims to provide access to a broader degree of capital classes and investor base.

Development Impact

Projects must lead to one or more of our development impact goals: sustainability, poverty reduction, financial inclusion, gender balanced employment and job creation while meeting best practices on health, safety, environment and social impact
