BONUS Banca de Inversión SAS Claims Two Awards: Most Innovative Project Advisory Team Latin America 2014 & Outstanding Deal Structuring Colombia 2014


The economic contribution that effective infrastructure development has on economic growth is hard to overstate. There are numerous local and international firms providing project management services to support infrastructure development. The difference that these teams can make has a real and often immediate impact.

The Judging Panel was delighted to see some very strong entries for the Most Innovative Project Advisory Team Latin America 2014. However, one team in particular stood out in the Judges’ mind: BONUS Banca de Inversión, a Colombian investment bank, has a track record that speaks for itself. Its performance is most impressive as well.

BONUS has rapidly become the project advisory team of choice in Colombia. The close-knit team has managed to successfully blend its multidisciplinary skillsets to produce innovative and effective solutions that consistently provide competitive and timely results. The BONUS team has managed to build high levels of confidence within the international financial community, not least through a meticulous attention to relevant detail.

This has allowed BONUS to structure original solutions. The Judging Panel was extremely impressed with the work done to structure the financing of the Magdalena River Waterway Project that aims to drive internal transportation costs down and thus increase Colombia’s competitiveness in global markets.

The Judges made the unusual decision to grant BONUS a second award for Outstanding Deal Structuring Colombia 2014 for this ground-breaking project. The skills and experience BONUS has honed and gathered in Colombia are already resulting in a demand for their services outside the country. BONUS’ practices shine as an example of how local teams of experts can leverage their regional knowledge and understanding to outperform and outclass global competitors.
