Investing for life

Education is one of the single-most transformative experiences in life. For nations worldwide, it is a staple of life, and there is an ever-present social need for supportive infrastructure and facilities. Investors can play a transformative role in this equation, including through the provision of Public Private Partnerships (PPP), which is an arrangement between a unit of government and a business in the private sector.

On behalf of its investors, and in partnership with the South Australian government, AMP Capital announced the successful refinance of the South Australian Schools Project’s AUD $172 million debt facility last year. The South Australia Schools portfolio includes six newly constructed ‘super schools’ in Adelaide, providing education to over 4,600 students across primary, middle, secondary, special education and childcare. All schools have been completed and are operating.

Education is widely accepted to be a fundamental resource, both for individuals and societies. Indeed, in most countries, basic education is nowadays perceived not only as a right, but also as a duty – governments are typically expected to ensure access to basic education, while citizens are often required by law to attain education up to a certain basic level."
