Investments

The Investments team structures, negotiates and executes complex infrastructure investment transactions. Investments are made alongside private sector and institutional investors, and other public sponsors, as appropriate, in projects that might otherwise not be viable and that require public support to proceed.

To ensure public dollars go as far as possible, and that the risks, rewards and costs of a project are appropriately shared among parties, the CIB is developing market mechanisms to generate competition for investments, and to ensure that competitive tension is present in the negotiation and structuring of all projects receiving CIB support.

Investments Team

The Canada Infrastructure Bank has established a high caliber Investments Team with significant commercial expertise and private sector experience. The professional designations, infrastructure sector and project finance experience of the team members is comprehensive and comparable to any leading investment team in the private sector. The team members also have extensive background in the CIB’s four priority sectors: green, transit, trade and transportation, and broadband infrastructure. This is an unique value proposition for the CIB to make infrastructure investments with both public sponsors and private investors. The previous track record of the CIB Investments Team members will help to ensure CIB investments mobilize private capital, manage risks, and pursue revenue generating project opportunities that are in the public interest. Comprehensive infrastructure experience in Canada and around the world:

  • Power and renewables
  • Public transportation
  • Roads and toll roads
  • Rail and light rail transit
  • Ports
