IPFA Americas: Los Angeles: Asset Monetization: Fad or the Future of Infrastructure
05 October 2011
Time: 3:30 PM
Hosted by: The Keston Institute for Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy & Marsh
Location: USC Radisson Midtown, 3540 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA
The International Project Finance Association (IPFA) is delighted to inform members of our latest meeting for Los Angeles, entitled: "Asset Monetization: Fad or the Future of Infrastructure".
As state and local governments struggle with falling tax revenues and budget shortfalls, they are looking to monetize existing public assets. In exchange for a lump sum up-front payment to government, a private entity will take over the operation of a revenue producing public asset, such as parking, toll roads, and water utilities. The private entity will collect revenues, operate and maintain the asset, and turn it back to the public sector at the end of the concession period (>25 years). The proceeds can be used to pay for infrastructure or offset other budget demands. A panel will examine recent examples from California and around the country and discuss the future of asset monetization in the US. A networking drinks reception will follow.
