Our Business

hero scroll icon

One group, multiple solutions.

We offer a range of solutions that span the infrastructure project lifecycle, from early-stage incubation and development, to credit solutions that bridge gaps in local capital markets.

Working throughout the project lifecycle, we de-risk projects, transform markets and build local capacity, creating a deep and lasting impact. 

Since our founding in 2002, we have deployed $1.9 billion in official development assistance, which has been deployed and recycled into $5.2 billion in investment commitments. These have led to $40 billion in investment in PIDG projects, with almost half of that amount coming from the private sector. 211 of our projects have reached financial close. In total, approximately 223 million people in 40 countries have or are expected to gain access to new or improved infrastructure as a result of our work. 

Safety for all involved in our work, gender equality and climate considerations are at the very core of what we do. 

PIDG in numbers between 2002 and 2022:

long-term jobs created

How we operate

PIDG operates along the project life cycle and across the capital structure, to help projects overcome financial, technical or environmental challenges, creating investment-ready, bankable infrastructure opportunities.

Upstream Technical Assistance

Our purpose is to combat poverty in the poorest and most fragile countries through pioneering infrastructure to help economies grow and change people’s lives.TA grants support the PIDG Companies at any stage of the project lifecycle. DevCo helps fund PPP advisory services to governments, delivered through the IFC.


InfraCo Africa and InfraCo Asia originate, develop, structure, invest in and manage projects. They can make equity and debt investments in innovative and pioneering projects, and remedy the absence of capital.

Credit Solutions

EAIF provides long-term loans in sub-Saharan Africa. GuarantCo provides innovative local currency contingent credit solutions, including guarantees to banks and bond investors to develop local capital markets.

Where we operate

We operate at the frontier where other organisations cannot or will not yet go. We focus on frontier markets, with our focus on sub-Saharan Africa and south and south east Asia.

We work to overcome the multiple challenges and market failures that prevent the deployment of infrastructure services in Sub-Saharan Africa and South-East Asia.

We have always worked in spaces that receive little or no attention – a large proportion of our activities take place beyond the comfort zone of most infrastructure investors. Out of the more than 200 projects that have reached financial close, more than 50% are in Fragile or Conflict-Affected States, and more than 50% are in the poorest Least Developed Countries.
