The Infrastructure and Construction Practice Group carries out assignments in the industries that underpin national economies and support every community’s quality of life. Once seen as stable and low growth, the entry of sovereign wealth and pension funds into infrastructure investment, coupled with increasing levels of cross border ownership and the privatisation of formerly Government owned utilities, has created a demand for more sophisticated and financially literate senior management teams and Boards.
The Practice Group aims to share knowledge and experience across markets and to assist in the development of a strong cross-border business development and referral system.
