Infrastructure Private Capital Mobilization Platform
AIIB is considering investing in a new platform business that will purchase infrastructure loans from financial institutions and distribute them to institutional investors through securitization or other formats. This will support private capital mobilization and builds infrastructure as an asset class. The purchase of such loans is predicated on the hypothesis that financial institutions that currently originate and hold such loans to maturity will increasingly be constrained from doing so with the advent of Basel lll regulations.
