Following the signing of Natixis’ joint venture agreement with Ageas – a deal that sees the insurance company agree to invest in all future infrastructure loans arranged by Natixis – we ensured the news was carried by all the relevant specialist infrastructure and project finance publications in the UK. News coverage resulted in Infrastructure Journal, Infra News, PPP Bulletin, Project Finance International, Project Finance and Inspiritia.
Due to the innovative nature of this distribution arrangement, we will be undertaking a specific campaign to support Natixis in its efforts to replicate it in the UK. Further interviews, including one already undertaken with Partnerships Bulletin magazine, will support the campaign. The Partnerships Bulletin article, published in the November edition, concludes that ultimately it will be lenders’ appetite for infrastructure debt that will dictate how future infrastructure projects are funded. Following the Ageas agreement, Natixis is described as one of the few banks that is showing ‘the way forward’ and ‘getting their heads together and coming up with solutions to the funding crisis’.
