The trainer has trained others in his specialism of financial modelling, running both in-house tailored courses for clients and public courses with major training companies all around the world.
The course is designed to support analysts to create and analyse project financial models on a consistent and focussed basis.
The principal aim of the course is enable participants to create, use and analyse a project finance model. This will be done by reviewing best practice in model structures and logic, building up calculations and using tools to analyse outputs, highlight areas of risk and perform sensitivity analysis.
The learning methods used are practical, as practicing newly-learned techniques enables deeper and more effective building of skills. Each section will be covered briefly as a module in a traditional class style, but the real learning experience is in the exercises after each module. These gives delegates the chance to build project finance models based on real-life situations, practising what has been learned with support from the instructor. Suggested solutions to each exercise will be provided and discussed, and participants will be encouraged to review their work independently. Further supporting materials, including real-life project finance models and additional exercises will be available for further post-course learning, with ongoing support from the instructor.
Each module ends with a practical exercise, in which delegates put to use the skills they have just learned. Two small but comprehensive models will be created from scratch, with help and support provided by the facilitator. Starting with basic assumptions and input data, delegates will build models with financial structures, inflation, cash flow waterfalls, balance sheet and P&L, equity returns, ratios and cover factors, and sensitivities.
