In infrastructure franchising, risks must be allocated to the agent that can handle them. To mitigate risks that the concessionaire can not handle with should decrease the return required by the concessionaire and increase the expected return of the Government. In this paper we analyze a particular franchise contract in Uruguay, and we try to measure those effects when risks are mitigated. We use simulation techniques, using different hypothesis about the way risk averse agents take decisions under uncertainty. In the case we analyze, the impact of mitigating risks of the concessionaire diminish its expected result in about 40%, although the expected result of the Government increase in a no significant way.
