Project Finance Mastery

Mastering Project Finance: Strategies for Optimal Returns in Capital-Intensive Investments

Project Finance Training

3-Day Course: An all-inclusive MBA of project finance theory and practice. An intensive course using case studies to analyse project financing, including the role of the model in quantifying risk.

About the Course

Companies engaged in capital-intensive and discreet investments always have the choice to undertake the expenditure on a limited recourse basis, utilising a special purpose vehicle to hold the investment and its associated financing.

The purpose of this project finance training course is to detail:

  • What advantages (as well as disadvantages) are associated with limited recourse (i.e. project) financing
  • What are the essential differences between conventional financing and limited recourse financing
  • The identification of the different financing characteristics between sectors and why those different characteristics exist
  • The manner in which contractual rights can be enforced or protected in complex, cross-border situations, often in emerging market locations
  • With particular attention to the pre-completion phase of greenfield projects
  • The contrasting of projects with market risk/offtake and those with availability risk
  • The identification of the characteristics of different financing approaches – bank syndication, Rule 144A bonds, domestic bonds, leasing, export credit agency, credit enhancements
  • The role of the model in project financing which differs in significant ways from the role of the model in other forms of financing arrangements
  • The appropriate approach of sponsors to the evaluation of the proposed investment and its financing methodology
  • The case studies are an important feature of the course. They are selected to bring out particular issues and for the broad relevance they have across different sectors and geographies.

Who Will Benefit

This course is designed for those who have had some exposure to financing in general but who could benefit from an awareness of the benefits that can be derived from the limited recourse financing approach.
