US Infrastructure Funding: At A Crossroads in Washington?

By |February 23rd, 2018|

GLDPartners knows well the potential of joining public and private resources to further the public objectives for transportation efficiency and economic development.

With that said, it is right to push the limits in the US about developing comfort and sophistication about producing a supportive political climate and creating policy that enables specific project investment opportunities for ready infrastructure investors. In most US states or local governments there is not today a significant comfort, interest or level of sophistication about reducing the public risk profile by joining their objectives with private investment. This might be about funding projects where the State or local government just doesn't have the cash flow to support the debt to fund infrastructure that is called-for in strategic plans.

The Sweden-China Autonomous Vehicle Connection is Proving

By |January 4th, 2018|

A good interview that lays out Volvo's autonomous vehicle development plan well and generally describes their business approach and the role of corporate partnerships. GLDPartners Auto see's Volvo's mature business approach to the science of AV integration as refreshing and one that will lead to very good things. With the Autoliv connection and the map-back to their ownership's Chinese base, Volvo is an outsized player that will emerge as a true global factor as the industry and the tech matures.
