Private Finance Initiative (PFI)

A Private Finance Initiative (PFI) is a method for building, managing and maintaining public facilities using the capital, technology and expertise of the private sector to achieve higher efficiency and improved quality in public services.

Obayashi was among the first to participate in overseas PFI projects, such as the Sydney Olympics Main Stadium, even before PFI was introduced into Japan. This experience afforded us a broad range of expertise in the business, and Obayashi has already won a large number orders for PFI projects in Japan.

We have also been recognized for our knowledge and techniques in project financing and risk-hedging, which are entrusted to a Special Purpose Company (SPC) as the main functional entity for a project. We fully apply our comprehensive expertise and skills, as well as our solid financial foundation, to advance the PFI business.
