International Finance Techniques
International finance techniques have become increasingly effective but technically challenging. This course first covers challenges common to most international financings. Separate units then cover several of the most common cross-border finance techniques, including Project Finance, Securitization, Capital Markets Finance, and International Investment Funds, analyzing key elements of each technique and providing examples of legal and tax regimes and specific transactions to illustrate such techniques. Further units cover opportunities to enhance such financings, including risk management and accessing Islamic finance.
At the beginning of the course, students are assigned to teams. Each team is provided with a brief case study proposing one of the finance techniques covered in the course. In the final sessions of the course, each team makes a presentation and provides a paper covering the key elements and issues of the finance technique in its case study.Credits: 2
