Opportunities in Israel
Israel is still in the process of building and improving its infrastructure, whilst providing landmark opportunities to accredited investors.
The scale of infrastructure investment demand is enormous, and there is a growing need to replace and expand infrastructure, including all parts of the energy supply chain and a wide array of public services such as roads, railways, airports, and communications networks. Initiatives in these areas have become more difficult due to a reduction in traditional public funding and weakened economic conditions. These resource issues have created a heightened need for experienced private capital.
