Infrastructure Modeling for Mexico is a master-level class. Besides analyzing classic elements of project and infrastructure finance, this course takes a unique look at model intricacies surrounding Mexican structures, such as CUCA and CUFIN, among other items. After reviewing some basic elements of project finance, the participants are given a full suite of project documents and macroeconomic information that are indicative to any infrastructure project. Immediately following is a step-by-step procedure of building a complex equity-case model. This phase of the course demonstrates how contracts dovetail and that nothing in project finance is mutually exclusive.

Once completed, the delegates review the model from a due-diligence perspective, usually taken from a lender or third-party equity perspective. The final phase of this module uses sophisticated modeling techniques to help the practitioner price the deal. Special consideration is given to more advanced project-finance issues like liquidated damages analysis and appropriate security packages. The overriding theme of this specialty course is to use the model as a highly-developed financial analysis tool that reviews the appropriate risk-versus-reward profiles of project finance.
