InfraDeal’s co-head of research, Daniel Davies, provides comment and data for the Financial Times’ Gill Plimmer in her recent article on US versus UK public/private sector partnership schemes (PPPs). The full article is available to read here.

Although the UK created the model for public/private sector partnership schemes in the 1990s, 30 new-build projects with a value of just $4.85bn were launched in the year to December 2016, according to InfraDeals, the data provider.

But Daniel Davies, co-head of research at InfraDeals, said Mr Trump may struggle, if he believes that launching PPP schemes is as “easy as flicking a switch”. Most infrastructure deals are approved by the state and municipalities in the US, presenting myriad political, environmental and legal hurdles.

“I don’t think even an executive order from the president could kick-start this because there are so many obstacles to get through” – Daniel Davies, InfraDeals
