Project Finance Course

Date: October 19, 21, 26 and 28, 2020.

One of the biggest restrictions to the acceleration of Brazilian economic development is the low volume of investments in the area of ​​infrastructure. It is enough to note that currently these investments correspond to approximately 1.5% of the GDP (5.5% in the seventies and 4.5% in the current world average).

Considering the gravity of the country's fiscal situation, it is clear that the recovery of infrastructure necessarily involves greater participation by the private sector, which can be made possible through Public – Private Partnerships and via concessions / privatizations.

Against this background, the course explores and provides a reflection on important aspects to be able to increase the level of investment in infrastructure in Brazil.

Objective: To encourage participants to reflect on Project Finance aspects and on Infrastructure challenges, with sectorial highlights, PPPs, Rating and Cases (Case Analysis), including best practices observed in the international market.

At the end of the course, the participant will be able to discern the central aspects that involve this modality, including risk analysis and attribution, challenges, contractual structure, regulatory aspects, use of financial instruments and case studies.
