* Training Course: Infrastructure Finance in Asia (Singapore, November 26-28) *
InfraPPP is organizing a training program for infrastructure professionals interested in infrastructure finance and public private partnerships in the Asia Pacific region.
The market for Project Finance in Asia is potentially huge -according to the ADB, $8 trillion worth of infrastructure needs to be financed by 2020 and only a fraction of this will come from host governments. The governments recognize this and are looking to foreign Export Credits and the private sector to help plug the gap with Project Finance.
But much needs to be done if this potential is to be converted into actual deals signed.
This course introduces the superior risk assessment and focus on allocation of responsibilities and rewards which are fundamental to Project Finance. It explores the techniques used by Project Finance to control cash flows in a wide range of outcomes and to incentivize performance by counterparties in transactions which are high profile, high value, long dated, much needed yet politically sensitive.
Using recent case studies from across the region, the course spans all infrastructure sectors across Asia where opportunities vary considerably according to size and depth of markets, readiness of host governments, commitment of local sponsors, ambition of exporters and a cast of commercial banks which has changed completely in recent years. It does so by learning lessons both from deals which were successful and those which needed reworking and by drawing on the Course Director's first - hand experience of equity, debt and public sector perspectives both in Australia and the U.K. where many Project Finance concepts were first developed then, for the past fifteen years, in the very different markets of Asia.
Andrew Kinloch, the course Director, has 20+ years Lead Arranging and advising on project, export and structured financings in Sydney with Westpac; in London with IBJ / Mizuho then UBS; and in Hong Kong where he ran Global Structured Finance, Asia Pacific for WestLB at a time when it was in the top five Lead Arrangers of Project Finance globally and where he was responsible for a € 2.5 billion loan book and 30 professionals. He was a board member of the only Asia - based aircraft lessor, now Bank of China Aviation. He spent 2010 at the ADB as Head of PPP Advisory Services before returning to the private sector.
