Our Services

Project Finance Advisory

Our team members have supported clients in a variety of roles that include sponsor, investor, underwriter, advisor, and asset manager.

To ensure a successful project closing we focus on:

  • Leveraging our proprietary project screening process to identify potential issues early and identifying solutions more quickly.
  • Mitigating risks, especially construction risk which is usually the major risk on a project.
  • Four main commercial contracts using our proprietary framework for commercial negotiations.
  • Deploying innovative financial structures where needed.
  • Ensuring that the extensive documentation required is completed efficiently and accurately.

Project Finance Modeling

Our unique, significantly simplified project finance model accelerates the process and reduces your costs. This has been refined over the years and overcomes many of the frustrations with other approaches to modeling.

  • We customize project-specific worksheets around a fixed chassis of standard financial statements to simplify the financial model.
  • We have developed built-in tests that are part of the chassis to ensure accuracy.
  • We follow strict modeling disciplines such as creating an ‘Assumptions Book’ so that all assumptions are in one place and fully documented. We have clear rules that result in fewer mistakes and make auditing easier.
