2nd Annual World Class Project Finance Excellence 2017Date: 21st to 23rd June 2017, Johannesburg
Infrastructure is sorely needed in almost every corner of Globe. Indeed, according to the African Development Bank, $8 trillion needs to be invested in infrastructure in Africa by 2020. But how will even a fraction of this amount be raised? How much infrastructure will actually get built, where and by whom? And thus where are the opportunities for lenders, investors and market players?
In today’s volatile markets, there is a renewed appreciation of the relatively stable, long term cash flows that stem from investment in infrastructure. An increasing proportion of such infrastructure is by necessity being financed on a project – or limited resource – basis. At the same time, many emerging markets are being re-evaluated as less risky than previously thought. Thus, attention to project finance in Africa has rarely been greater. But they all need to build large, long-term infrastructure assets. The potential business is huge, but the practicalities can be challenging.
Project finance enables joint ventures to raise focused, risk sharing finance in key industries and is the leading method for cash-strapped governments to introduce private sector skills, disciplines and funding in sectors ranging from transportation, Public Private Partnership (PPP), power, oil and gas, telecom, mining and more.
Benefiting from the course director’s 27 years of practical experience in infrastructure and project finance in both developed and developing markets, delegates will use practical templates and “stories from the field” to illustrate the relevant points. You will receive models which are ready-to-use and sharpen your analytical capabilities. You will take away more than 400 pages of documentation and materials.
