Enabling Sustainable Finance

Local governments’ fiscal capacities to sustain capital and recurring financing of public and infrastructure services are stretched in most cities around the world. Chreod has advised China’s Ministry of Finance on municipal finance reforms and on public infrastructure investment policy; our final reports on both these assignments were published as books in China.

Chreod recently designed the first pooled credit facility for urban environmental infrastructure financing in China. The Asian Development Bank subsequently retained Chreod to assess its replicability for Karachi, Pakistan’s principal metropolitan region.

We have also assisted in the preparation of a long-term enterprise bond issued by Shanghai’s largest infrastructure investment company, Shanghai Chengtou Corporation.

Chreod’s Team includes financial economists who have advised governments around the world, and experienced capital investment planners of metropolitan infrastructure.
