Project and Export Finance

Project finance is a non-recourse loan structure used to fund infrastructure projects. Project finance keeps the debt off the project sponsor’s balance sheet – if the project defaults, the lenders take over ownership of the project asset and have no recourse to the original project sponsor. This enables developers to borrow money for major projects without the risk of corporate bankruptcy should the project fail. The structure is widely used in the financing of major projects in the oil and gas, power, renewables, mining, transport (fixed and moveable assets) and public-private-partnership (P3) sectors. In addition to non-recourse debt, project financing can take the form of limited recourse debt, ECA-backed debt, DFI-backed debt, project bonds and even securitisations.
