Project and Asset Finance

Project and Asset Finance with Limited Recourses

Name: Project and Asset Finance

Components: 3 Seminar Presentations

Duration: 21 hours

One of the issues that the crisis has introduced to today’s industries is the need to persevere and expand with limited recourses compared to a few years back. Today’s economy calls for specific and fine-tuned project development, skills that today’s decision makers in all industries and every business from every size needs to hone and refine.

Today’s business executives, in any field and any industry, need to understand the basics of project and asset finance and acquire the knowledge that is needed to be applied to keep the company afloat and expanding.


During this course participants will obtain a thorough grounding in limited-recourse financing applied to a range of capital-intensive industries, like the Financial Services Sector, Maritime, Construction Sector, Small to Medium Size Businesses etc.

Project finance is the long-term finance of infrastructure and industrial projects based upon the projected cash flows of the project rather than the balance sheets of its sponsors. Project finance is often more complicated than alternative financing methods. It takes a variety of skills including financial, management, legal and business savviness to master this area of structured finance, skills that will be provided by this course.

By attending this three day course participants will:

  • Master the financing, legal documentation and structuring of Project Financing
  • How to best manage the risk in Project Financing
  • Understand the most profitable strategies in Equipment Financing
  • Understand how to work with Business Partners from the Arab Countries
  • Learn the safest ways to engage in any form of Constuction/Maritime/Derivative/Energy/Oil&Gas Finance

Engage in 10 separate case study workshops to reinforce newly learnt knowledge to improve your acumen


The candidates who will complete the program successfully will be awarded a ‘Certificate of Training’, stating that the Cyprus Human Resource development Authority approves the program.
