Portland Advisers is a financial advisory boutique.
They bring together banking and advisory professionals who have extensive experience in their respective markets. Through the teams based in the UK and Hong Kong, they provide expert, value-added advice on all aspects of the financing of infrastructure, power, oil & gas, renewable energy, mining and telecoms projects across all regions of the world.
Social, Transport and other Infrastructure includes, inter alia, schools, hospitals, police/fire stations, social housing and regeneration, waste schemes, roads, rail, bridges, water infrastructure investments
Energy includes conventional power plants (gas/coal/oil) and oil & gas (upstream/midstream/downstream)

Mining includes all of the base and precious metals
Telecoms includes fixed, wireless, cable and satellite infrastructure
Sports Stadia includes outdoor stadia, indoor arenas and multipurpose event facilities.
The scope of the assignments varies from the provision of specific advice on narrowly-defined financing issues to the delivery of a full-service financial advisory proposition for complex, multi-lender financings of greenfield projects.
They pride themselves on being at the forefront of financing developments, providing tailored, high quality advice from senior professionals based on the latest industry and financial market dynamics.
They like to create a close working relationship with each of the clients through integration with their own project teams and through regular and clear communication. With a pragmatic and pro-active approach to the engagements, the advice is given from a truly independent perspective ensuring unbiased, optimal solutions for all the clients’ financing needs. The need for such an independent view on raising funding has never been greater than with the advent of the global financial crisis which has resulted in a steep reduction in bank lending capacity and more onerous terms and conditions.
