Moray Watt

Senior Adviser

With over 25 years’ experience in the project finance sector, Moray leads QMPF’s infrastructure  team and is responsible for a number of innovative funding strategies on projects across the social infrastructure sector in the UK and Ireland. He has advised on many of the alternative project finance structures emerging across the UK, including LIFT schemes to deliver community health infrastructure in England, the Non Profit Distributing (NPD) model in Scotland, the hub model adopted in Scotland to deliver community based accommodation and recently bidding on the new Welsh Mutual Investment Model (MIM), itself an evolution of the NPD model. Exposure to all these different structures, plus experience with Strategic Estates Partnerships, Priority Schools and advising both public and private sectors allows a unique insight into understanding the ultimate clients’ needs and consequent focused advice. Moray also advises on the valuation of project finance investments, both for reporting requirements but also relating to potential sales or acquisitions.

Moray is currently leading the refinancing of a bundle of projects, as well as advising clients bidding on several projects in Ireland and on a Welsh MIM project.  Moray has also represented the company on a number of SPV boards.

Prior to joining Quayle Munro’s Edinburgh office in 1999, Moray worked for the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh as Project Finance Manager for the New Royal Infirmary project. Moray qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Ernst & Young in Edinburgh after graduating with a BA in Accountancy and Finance from Heriot Watt University.
