Ceres partners with public and/or private sector/operators to finance large core infrastructure projects in various sectors such as transportation (airports, toll roads, bridges, tunnels, rail, parkings, etc.), distribution (water, waste and energy pipelines/grids), utilities, construction, telecommunication (optic fiber networks), social infrastructure (student housing, etc.) and specialty infrastructure (government/military buildings, courthouses, storages).
Ceres deploys large amounts of senior debt over the long term (> 20 years) to single infrastructure projects. Ceres is an alternative source of financing (to banks or muni-bonds) for municipalities/public entities and corporates to realize their asset renovation in a time and cost-efficient manner.
Ceres is a flexible solution (sculpts the debt amortization based on the cash flow profile of the asset to be renovated) and matches the maturity of the loan with the duration of the concession. Ceres hereby reduces the financial stress of the project and to the owners of the asset thanks to the long term and affordable nature of its financing (reducing annuities), avoids the refinancing cost/risk, prevents the debt to end up on the public entity and for the operator’s balance sheets and enhances returns to shareholders of the project (private equity infrastructure funds, operators, etc.).
