Find out what the bank's view is on project finance.

About this event

Currently, real long-term interest rates are low and the potential supply of long-term liquidity is ample. This is a rather good setting for investment in infrastructure projects. Tapping this liquidity could significantly boost project finance. So what are the drivers for investors and in particular banks to provide this liquidity to finance projects? How to define 'investable' projects from a bank's perspective?

This talk gives an overview of the above, followed by more specifically Rabobank's proposition in Project Finance and the issues that a bank takes into consideration when assessing a financing request from potential clients.
