Bridging the $50 Trillion Global Infrastructure Investment Gap
Sovereign Infrastructure Group (“SIG”) is a global financing company that works with project sponsors and Multilateral Development Banks, as well as national and local governments, in originating and structuring infrastructure deals across Africa, Latin America, and in other growth markets using both debt and equity investments.
SIG uses a proprietary, internal investment selection process to identify, review, select, and execute participation investments alongside the Multilateral Development Banks. At each stage, from setting the parameters for investments to bottom-up credit analysis and Investment Committee deliberations, SIG assess the project’s macro, credit, and compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals.
SIG seeds, structures, and connects the private investment capital that the Multilateral Development Banks seek to mobilize. SIG’s strategy utilizes catalytic capital to provide local governments and project sponsors with access to the global capital markets, while supporting economic and community development goals.
SIG invests alongside the Multilateral Development Banks, which promote environmentally sound and sustainable development in their countries of operations. SIG is a private sector partner committed to helping the Multilateral Development Banks and local governments
achieve outcomes consistent with the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals by creating investment facilities that are market-based, scalable and sustainable.
SIG is committed to investing in innovative opportunities that provide double bottom line returns. SIG has the ability to draw upon the people, capital, and in-house expertise to deliver strong results. SIG partners with academic institutions, governments, non-governmental organizations and corporations to align financial and social incentives toward a greater public good.

accelerating the financial closure of deals.
