As a trusted advisor in global capital markets, lenders utilize Advisian’s services to provide an impartial, independent project analysis during distinct phases of a capital project’s lifecycle, including:

  • FID through pre-funding activities
  • Project finance loan syndication
  • Project execution through engineering, procurement, and construction

We offer impartial advice to facilitate a project’s ability to source capital.  Our perspectives and knowledge, underpinned by decades of subject matter expertise on ~USD 200 billion dollars of project financings globally differentiates Advisian from every other expert in the industry.  Based upon each capital project and its associated scope, our Lender’s Independent Advisor reports will be in support of the following:

Pre-Funding Reports

A “syndicate-able” independent technical report commissioned on behalf of the project to assess and confirm key project elements such as technology selection, technical performance, project management plan, construction schedule, completion criteria, commercial contracts, operations and maintenance budgets - all tied to expected financial performance.

Construction Monitoring Reports

Monthly construction monitoring reports that provide the necessary oversight of the project’s funding requirements. The reports detail project execution and capital cost reviews on behalf of project investors. Reporting typically includes site visits and project progress updates.

Completion Testing Reports

Validation of contractual agreements with emphasis on project substantial completion for the EPC contractor and final completion for the project sponsor according to the financing documentation. 

Operations and Maintenance Reports

Quarterly, semi-annual or annual reviews of project’s operational performance, which provides lenders a periodic independent assessment of the project.
