The FSB is seeking responses to this survey in order to gather feedback from financial institutions that are actively involved in infrastructure financing by providing investments and sponsorship, insurance against financial and non-financial risks and advice on transactions. The survey seeks first-hand information from experienced market participants on recent and expected trends in infrastructure finance, and on the relevant drivers of these trends; on the extent to which G20 financial regulatory reforms agreed post-crisis have influenced the cost and availability of financing for infrastructure, and on how significant regulations compare to other factors, such as the macro-economic environment.

The FSB, in close collaboration with the international standard-setters, is conducting this survey as part of its work to evaluate the effects of the G20 financial regulatory reforms using its evaluation framework. This evaluation is part of the FSB’s examination of the effects of the G20 regulatory reforms on financial intermediation, carried out under the FSB’s evaluation framework.

A final report on financing of infrastructure investment will published in advance of the G20 Leader’s Summit in Buenos Aires at end-November 2018 and a report on financing for small and medium-sized enterprises will be submitted to the G20 Leaders’ Summit in Japan in 2019.

The following information is available for financial institutions responding to the survey:

  • Survey – a word template that will be used to collect survey responses. All responses must be completed in this format.

  • Instructions for completing the survey – a note providing instructions for completion of the survey.

  • Background note – an explanation of the FSB’s work to evaluate the effects of the G20 financial regulatory reforms on financial intermediation.
