Why we invested

NZ Schools 2 PPP provides educational facilities to meet the local demand and optimally support the educational vision of each school. These new state of the art facilities are attended to by experienced multinational facilities management contractors. The investments provide stable long-term, index-linked cash flows backed by high quality public sector counterparties.

  • Stable Income from high quality counterparties: The investment companies receive availability-based revenues from public sector counterparties
  • International Delivery Model: INPP has invested in PPP assets in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Europe and the UK
  • Long Term, Predictable Cash Flows: PPP concessions will typically last for between 25 and 35 years
  • Risk Transfer: Construction and operational risks are transferred to investment company’s supply chain partners
  • Inflation-Protected Revenues: Revenues are generally inflation-linked and indexed to local inflation measures, such as the UK’s Retail Price Index (‘RPI’) 
  • Critical Infrastructure: INPP’s PPP investments deliver much needed critical infrastructure to the public sector, supporting local societies and communities across our key geographies
