Project Finance & Project Financial Modelling

Dates & Locations:

16 – 20 Feb 2020, Dubai

13 – 17 Jul 2020, Singapore

9 – 13 Nov 2020, Johannesburg



Modern project finance transactions require a high level of expertise in building financial models which are reliable and flexible to accommodate the changing requirements occurring during the life of a project. This 5 days course covers both project finance and financial modelling best practices.

The first 3 days of the programme provide project financing skills you can immediately use upon return to your workplace. You will learn demonstrated analytical strategies to assess the degree of risk and benefits of specific project financing, along with the elements of the day-to-day business and operational aspects. This programme is also designed to enhance the checklists and benchmark metrics by which you can reduce losses and which will be viewed favourably by both management and the regulatory community.

The last 2 days of the programme cover financial modelling techniques, including how to model the role of debt, debt covenants, cash waterfalls, intercreditor relations, restructuring and rescheduling of debt, how to model risk, and the role of equity and its rewards. In the course of the 2 days, you will build and evaluate a range of project finance models, covering projects as diverse as conventional and renewable energy investments, mines and private hospitals. You will overcome the most complex aspects of building a reliable model, including uncertainty, currency and timescale mismatches, debt amortisation, depreciation, control account waterfall, cost structures, and the ability to easily shift time scales, as well as the ability to identify and control key sensitivities through spreadsheet simulation.
