Investor Financing Workshop

HOW TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE:  BUILDING A BANKABLE FINANCE PACKAGE FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY DEALS

MONDAY, APRIL 29TH, 2013  | 1:00PM


The REFF LAC Investor Financing Workshop is the only event where project investors and developers get individualized, hands-on advice from leading renewable energy lenders and private equity funds.

The workshop will provide project investors with the rare opportunity to have an in-depth discussion with debt and equity financiers on structuring a renewable energy transaction and preparing a project proposal that will be attractive to lenders and equity investors. Attendees will also learn about opportunities to improve project profiles and increase interest from private sector finance through the mitigation of project and political risk.
