The Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund S.A. (HRADF), according to its founding Law No. 3986/2011, leverages the State private property assigned to it by the Hellenic Republic, according to the country's international obligations and the Medium-Term Fiscal Strategy.

In close cooperation with the Greek Government, HRADF promotes the implementation of privatizations in the country, having full responsibility for the application of the respective policy.

The materialization of the Fund’s privatization program is already in progress and its mission is the maximization of development by attracting direct investments in infrastructures, energy, real estate and other fields, while achieving additional important benefits, such as job creation, infrastructure modernization and promotion of the necessary reforms.  

The duration of HRADF, which was established on 1st July 2011, is until 1st July 2026, with a possibility of further extension. Its sole shareholder is the Hellenic Corporation of Assets and Participations (HCAP).  

The assets included in the Medium-Term Programs have already been transferred to the Fund and they can be summarized in the following three categories:

  1. Land Development
  2. Infrastructure
  3. Corporate
     

In addition, HRADF is assigned the maturation of contracts that are part of the Development Programme for Contracts of Strategic Importance according to the Law of Law 4799/2021 (A '78). Maturation services will be provided through a discrete operational unit at HRADF (Project Preparation Facility/PPF), so that there can be a clear distinction from the state-asset development role it has pursuant to Law 3986/2011.

In pursuing the purpose of the Fund, particular care shall be taken to contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the Europe Green Agreement and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

In the context of ensuring absolute transparency, the Fund publishes quarterly reports, has internal procedures and policies, a published Procurement Regulation and internal as well as external auditors.

In December 2018, HRADF received by TÜV AUSTRIA HELLAS two ISO Certifications:

- the ISO 9001:2015 - Quality Management System and

- the ISO 27001: 2013 - Information Security Management System 

  

HRADF is managed by experienced professionals from the banking and business sectors and from the consultancy and legal services sectors, aided by a Council of Experts, while experienced international consultants are recruited for each project. It has at its disposal the most developed project management systems and has adopted a simple organizational structure to facilitate the immediate decision-making process.

The Fund has adopted the Asset Development Plan (ADP), which is reviewed every six months and authorized by the Government Council for Economic Policy (KYSOIP). For the ADP preparation, the Fund is taking into account:

  1. The expected revenues
  2. The long-term benefits
  3. The complexity and maturity level of each project
     

All announcements, documents, and information relating to HRADF and its Program will be published on the Fund's website to achieve full transparency in terms of its procedures and keep the respective stakeholders updated.

Hellenic Republic’s Privatization Program represents a key initiative in attracting direct investments and the key element in re-establishing credibility, itself the basic pre-requisite for Greece's return to global capital markets.
 
Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund’s (HRADF's) sole mission is to maximize the Hellenic Republic's revenues by developing and/or selling the assets transferred to it. The revenues generated from the aforementioned processes should be construed as a virtual sum of the proceeds from the transfer of assets to the private sector, the economic benefits from ensuing direct investment in the said assets and the opening up of the respective market sectors.
 
In order to support the Hellenic Republic’s efforts to move forward, the Fund has established the following three principles: Clarity of purpose, transparency of processes and speed. The aforementioned principles are best served by pursuing clear and market-orientated privatization concepts, by abiding to transparent procedures and by moving fast in preparing and carrying out the privatizations undertaken.

The Board of Directors has full authority over decisions on the development and utilisation of public property projects and the maturation and acceleration of strategic importance projects classified as part of the “Strategic Project Pipeline”.

The Fund’s operation is also supported by the Council of Experts, individuals of wide acclaim, distinguished for their scientific training and professional experience in technical, economic, or legal sectors. The Council of Experts, consisting of seven members, has a three-year term, renewable for an equivalent period. The Board of Directors appoints four persons, and the Institutions appoint three. The Council of Experts gives an opinion on each project of public property utilisation, as described in the Founding Law of HRADF (Law 3986/2011).

The Board of Directors meets regularly to approve the key developments for public property development projects (pre-qualifications, main terms of the agreements, selection of the preferred investor etc.) and the procedures of maturing strategic projects. Decisions are taken by a simple majority of the BoD, and the opinion of the Council of Experts reflects the majority.

At the end of each tender process, there is an independent valuer, whose opinion is also taken into account by HRADF’s BoD in its meetings. Finally, following a decision of the Board of Directors on public property development projects, the file of the tender is submitted to the Court of Auditors for pre-contractual audit.
