Financing Transportation Assets

Tuesday November 14th 9:00 am to 12:30 pm GMT

This course has been designed to introduce participants, with little or no prior knowledge of the transportation sector, to the key risks associated with raising debt for different kinds of transportation assets.

Participants are guided through the key risk issues for roads, airports and ports as well as highlighting how each sub-transportation sector can themselves be very different. The course highlights the key credit factors which can be found in all transportation sectors as well as other sub-transportation assets, such as trains, monorail systems and ferries. The course will provide a guide to participants as to which transportation assets are considered stronger and which could be seen as weaker.

The half-day course (3 ½ hours), which is delivered by live webinar is led by Ian Dixon, who shares his knowledge gained from four decades experience in the global infrastructure and credit ratings market.
