Currently, whilst looking to Asia market to expand our infrastructure investments, we are also concentrating on those countries referred to as Emerging Markets, and countries represented by Sub-Saharan Africa. The World Economic Forum advises that global infrastructure investment is underinvested by USD 1 Trillion per annum, making infrastructure investments a global priority.
Mercantile Credit, SA, are invested in infrastructure projects in West Africa and the Balkans. We typically look to invest in patronage related assets, (those with strong demographic factors), such as toll roads, airports, seaports, rail, water purification and distribution, gas, electricity, and communication infrastructure.
We also look to partner with social infrastructure projects such as hospitals and education facilities, retirement homes, care homes and social housing. Whilst these investments are away from our geographical focus, we are currently engaged in consolidating relationships with potential partners in the North of England and Southern Europe.
