Living Cities has launched a new blog series to walk you through their process for deciding which PFS projects are worth the investment. Until recently there were only a limited number of PFS transactions from which to choose, but as the PFS field has continued to gain traction the volume of projects coming to the market has grown. As of June 2016, there were over 65 PFS projects at various stages of development. Living Cities has had to adapt their approach and implement a new screening process to determine which opportunities were a good used of the PFS model. While the screening criteria will continue to evolve, Living Cities want to make their criteria available to others in the hopes that it will help to inform their work.
