Financial Analysis Techniques for Infrastructure Projects

CEUs: 6.0

Course Description

Project finance is the financing of long-term infrastructure, industrial projects and public services based upon a non-recourse or limited recourse financial structure, in which project debt and equity used to finance the project are paid back from the cash flow generated by the project. In most developing markets, project finance is the preferred financial structure because the financing is limited- or non-recourse to the government.

Financial Analysis Techniques for Infrastructure Projects is designed for investment professionals and financial analysts. The course focuses on understanding the practical techniques, skills, and spreadsheet models needed to analyze, structure, and negotiate successful project-backed financings.

Participants will learn effective financial model design techniques through analyzing case studies of project financing models, and participating in role-playing simulations.
