CPD - Project Finance Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event

The Project Finance workshop is ideal for those finance professionals who desire to apply the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques learnt in the CMA program to project financing and investment appraisal activities. Essentially, Project finance is the financing of long-term infrastructure, industrial projects and public services using a non-recourse or limited recourse financial structure. Project finance is especially attractive to the private sector because companies can fund major projects off-balance sheet. The main feature of project finance is the whole amount may or may not be invested upfront.  A Project Finance Analyst is useful in the case of large projects related to industrial, construction, oil refinery or renewable energy projects.

The course also counts as 8 CPD hours for CMAs.
