Online event debates use of internal rate of return for concessions and PPPs
On March 25, at 6 pm, FGV Transport will hold a webinar called “Controversies and misuse of internal rate of return for concessions and PPPs.” The meeting will discuss the use of internal rate of return for concession contracts and public-private partnerships involving the federal government and the adoption of alternative methods for each of its functions.
The speakers will be the Economy Ministry’s special secretary for the Investment Partnerships Program, Martha Seillier; BNDES’ director of infrastructure, concessions and PPPs, Fábio Abrahão; Maurício Portugal Ribeiro, a partner in law firm Portugal Ribeiro Advogados, who has a master’s in law from Harvard Law School; and Felipe Sande, a specialist in economic and financial modeling and rebalancing of concessions and PPPs, who has a master’s in finance from the University of Sao Paulo. The moderator will be the director of FGV Transport, Marcus Quintella.
Internal rate of return is an economic and financial tool widely used in infrastructure sectors, for different purposes. However, doubts regarding its use persist, as shown by a survey carried out by professors Maurício Portugal Ribeiro and Felipe Sande. Most of these doubts come from a lack of knowledge about the use of internal rate of return in aspects such as pricing, tariff reviews, rebalancing and profitability measurement.
