The creation of a new private equity fund to allow pension funds to invest in infrastructure further diversifies Colombia's financing sources for projects, reducing the risks associated with the financing stage in the project cycle and improving the overall risk profile of the country. Furthermore, the new investment vehicle supports our positive forecasts for Colombia's construction industry in 2016.

Key Trends And Developments

- In the new low oil price environment, our Country Risk team forecasts GDP to grow by 3.4% in 2016 after an average of 4.8% between 2010 and 2014. In turn, we forecast construction industry value to grow by 7.6% in real terms in 2016.

- A new private equity fund that enables pension funds to invest in infrastructure has been created. Diversifying the sources of funding for infrastructure in Colombia will help reduce the cost of debt for projects as well as improving the overall risk profile of the country.

- The lower oil price environment has prompted the Colombian government to revise its budget estimates significantly as oil revenues account for about one fifth of total government inflows. In this context, encouraging private investment - through vehicles such as the above mentioned fund - will be critical to the implementation of the government's ambitious infrastructure plans.
