Project finance involves the financing of a major capital project where the lenders look principally to the project’s cash flow as the source of repayment and the assets of the project as the collateral or security for the borrowing. Essentially there is a focus on the project being financed and a reliance wholly or mainly on the project for the servicing of the debt.  


In conventional commercial lending, the cash flow is generally not dependent on the success or failure of one project. However, in project finance, it is essential that a thorough assessment of all aspects of the risks involved is made and the likely effect of variations on the project cash flow.

Here's What We'll Cover:
