The Project & Infrastructure Finance (PIF) business is an integral component of the Global Structured Debt team within CMO (Capital Markets Origination). PIF focuses on greenfield and asset level project financings involving infrastructure, energy, power and renewable assets.

Global Structured Debt:

Project & Infrastructure Finance is one of the businesses within Global Structured Debt.  We are dedicated to structuring bespoke financing solutions, typically on a non-recourse basis, for owners and developers of energy and infrastructure assets.  Execution may occur via direct lending, syndication to the bank market, negotiated private placements or the issuance of structured securities into the capital markets (for the past few years, Citi has ranked number one in the arranging of project/infrastructure bonds globally).  Financings apply across the capital structure and on a global basis across multiple sectors. These financings address the specialized and non-recourse funding needs facing our clients.  Transactions require the integration of efforts across multiple product platforms, and entail structuring for both cash flow and vis-à-vis specialized assets associated with renewable energy, social infrastructure, oil & gas projects and in the transportation realm (e.g. airports and roads).

Key Responsibilities:
  • Work collaboratively with a transaction team responsible for the origination and execution of greenfield and select project financings (primarily in the Americas).
  • Work closely with applicable industry bankers to identify and originate project finance financing and advisory situations that meet certain target market and capital returns criteria.
  • Financial modeling and execution of applicable debt financing structures for distribution in either the capital markets, or loan syndication market, or both.

  • As applicable, develop and present presentations on a particular project to one or more rating agencies for purposes of procuring a credit rating.
  • Together with the applicable syndicate desk, interface with banks in the project finance market, as well as certain institutional investors, for purposes of syndicating/selling project risk.
  • Work with the transaction team in managing applicable franchise, reputational or underwriting risk with respect to a specific project situation.
