Advanced Loan Documentation

The course studies the structural and commercial side of the loan agreement
  • The follow on to our ever popular “Loan Documentation” training program, (which focuses on the core loan agreement in the context of unsecured lending), this course discusses the variations on that document which will be appropriate in other commercial contexts, such as project and asset financing. Delegates will also have the opportunity to debate some of the key clauses in the loan agreement in a highly practical workshop. For this purpose delegates will be expected to have a working knowledge of the key clauses and issues listed in the section on prerequisites


    The course also covers the other documents in a loan financing package – the security, intercreditor arrangements and legal opinions and the issues which those documents address – to give a full understanding of the package as a whole.
