Does the project meet the requirements for export credit agency (ECA) coverage?
Which financing structure best fits the project concept?
How do we make the project bankable?
What are the key project risks, and how do we address them?
How do we reach a consensus with multiple lenders and ECAs?
We are a team of experienced international experts with a focus on project financing backed by export credit guarantees. The increasing use of project funding and export credit agency (ECA) coverage is driven by the growing demand for long-term funding for capital-intensive projects. Project financing lets sponsors finance large projects on normally attractive terms off the balance sheet. In addition, it is possible to share with the lenders the various risks associated with complex capital-intensive investments.
Nevertheless, investors seeking to implement large-volume projects face a whole range of challenges that can be effectively addressed with individual, tailored solutions. Our team of ECA Advisory experts specialise in this. Its strength lies in its composition. This is where colleagues with experience in the ECA and project financing business work. They have worked for German and international ECAs and have already structured a variety of international project finance deals. Our services cover the entire life cycle of the project.
