Credit Points: 15
ECF2226 Investment Finance II
The objective of the unit is to give students a practical understanding of how credit and lending decisions are made. Study will concentrate firstly on establishing and developing the principles of first way out and second way out. From there, the scope of the course will be broadened to consider the analysis and reporting of risks associated with the first and second ways out. The course finishes with the application of these principles to a series of practical lending situations: project finance, lending to the agricultural sector, and lending to small business. Throughout the course, case studies are used to illustrate and develop the concepts and principles covered. Case studies also figure prominently in the assessment for the unit.
