We work with all financing sources available for infrastructure and energy projects


Our deep access to the widest array of funding sources available for infrastructure and energy projects enables us to identify the most reliable and competitive funding sources for each project we work on 

Syndicated Loan Markets

We maintain excellent relationships with the most active commercial banks in the key markets we cover: out of our Washington DC and Paris offices we have excellent access to the major players in the New York and London syndicated loan markets, and our local teams are very well connected to the key regional players we work with to fund local currency deals:

  • Latin America: our day to day in our Mexico City, Bogotá, São Paulo and Santiago de Chile offices revolves around dealing with the most active commercial banks in the region 
  • Asia: we have been able to support clients in the region leveraging on the network of our team in Singapore  
  • Africa: we have advised clients in Northern Africa, in Western Africa or in South Africa where we have been able to consolidate a sound network of contacts across the banking industry

Agencies and Multilateral Source of Financing

We have a long track record of closed transactions involving Export Credit Agencies, Bilateral and Multilateral Agencies, who view Astris as a leading advisor in the emerging markets in which we are active. We maintain close relationships with the key professionals at each institution and we are intimately familiar with the due diligence and credit approval processes of the principal institutions. This positioning has made Astris the partner of choice for our clients to help navigate the International Financing Institutions world.

The strength of these relationships are demonstrated by the fact that we have brought several “firsts” to the market leveraging on agency financing and guarantee products.
