An Intensive 5-day Training Course

Project and Infrastructure Finance

A Work Class Approach to Financing and Structuring Project and
Infrastructure Finance

Course Introduction

Project finance is a well-established technique for raising funds for large stand-alone projects that require huge initial investments but have long pay-offs. The pay-offs to the financiers come from the cash flows of the project, as the sponsors of these projects often ring-fence their balance sheets from the risks of the project. Therefore, it requires some asset-specific financial structuring so that the risks are minimized and fund providers get their expected returns.

Throughout this Project and Infrastructure Finance training course, the participants will be able to relate their learning to real-world issues and problems and develop their ability to develop a structured and well discipline approach to Infrastructure and Project Finance process.
