Course Outline

This unique Project Finance Academy is designed as a modular 10-day course. The modules are separately bookable. The overall course objective is to examine advanced techniques relevant in the current stressed global financial markets and to enhance your 'sector' skills in four key areas. A 1-day session on Project Finance Risk/Recovery strategies is the followed by a 2-day module on building project-finance models. International case studies and best practices are discussed throughout, including the application and integration to public-private project financings.

Course Summary

The 9th Annual Project Finance academy starts with a 3-day Advanced Project Finance Workshop which focuses on the core skills of risk analysis and structuring, with a special emphasis on political risk. Team case presentations neatly wrap together these skills along with the analysis and sensitivities of the team case-study Excel models. Four 1- day courses then bring up-to-date sectors skills in Oil&Gas/LNG, Power, Mining, and Infrastructure. Industry fundamentals are first covered together with the key metrics and due diligence issues alongside numerous case studies. International best practices are delivered comprehensively. The 1-day module on Project-Finance Risk/Recovery examines projects that have gone wrong, including a review of the credit factors/reasons why these deals would go wrong - incorrect 'project concepts'.

The legal aspects and the four methods of loan workouts are also given. Finally, the 2-day course on Building Project-Finance Models looks at the key financial ratios and credit analysis as well as the forecast basis for any cashflow projection. This course is designed as a 'Build-your-own-model-from-scratch' with the final model used in a course bidding contest!

These 7 course modules are highly interactive with many cases and recent examples referenced throughout to fully explore the world of Project Finance. As a 10-day Academy, this intense approach isn't presented anywhere else in the world!
