Infrastructure and utilities

Our Infrastructure and Utilities team has proven success in helping clients succeed in this broad and complex sector.

Helping clients navigate the complexities

As the essential services that underpin our society, infrastructure and utilities are often complex businesses with complex banking and finance needs.

 

Whether it be funding for new infrastructure procured through a Public Private Partnership model, the acquisition of a port, the financing of a green field wind farm or a requirement to achieve better outcomes from regulatory cash-flow hedging, we have the knowledge and skills to help you achieve successful business outcomes.

 

With Westpac, you benefit from working with a bank that has:

  • A unique understanding of the industry and its challenges
  • Access to insights and information on the sector to support decision making
  • Experience meeting and exceeding the challenging deadlines and timetables often imposed by the industry
  • In depth technical and commercial knowledge to assist in finessing finance and banking outcomes.

 

 

“The deep expertise and knowledge that our Infrastructure & Utilities team has across a broad sector makes Westpac the first choice for the sector’s  banking needs.”
