Overview & Target Audience
The Loan Documentation e-Academy blends the interactive online content of the Loan Documentation e-Learning programme with a practical face-to-face training workshop. Delegates will benefit from the flexibility and freedom of e-Learning, while also having the opportunity to ask questions in person of the trainer, and benchmark themselves against and learn from their peers in a face to face setting.
What is blended learning?
Our e-Academy programmes blend interactive online content with practical face-to-face workshops to provide a more effective and personalised learning experience. They represent a fundamental shift from trainer to student-centred instruction to one in which students become active and interactive learners.
Why Loan Documentation?
Our Loan Documentation courses are designed for bankers, lawyers and others involved in international finance who need to understand the documentation. The courses are suitable both for experienced users and for those with no prior experience of the subject matter. They are useful for beginners, to give them a comprehensive review of the loan agreement and the issues it raises. They are also useful for those with practical experience but who have not previously had any formal in depth training on the agreement, to help them fill in the inevitable gaps in their knowledge and to give them a framework in which to consolidate their practical knowledge. It is also useful as a refresher. The course uses extracts and specimen clauses from a version of the investment grade Loan Market Association (LMA) loan agreement as the basis for discussions.
By the end of this course, participants should:
- Understand the structure of the loan agreement (investment grade, unsecured) and the relationship between its various provisions
- Be able to review a loan agreement for an investment grade borrower and identify key issues such as the scope of the agreement
- Be aware of the importance of the detailed provisions of the loan agreement and be able to negotiate some of the points commonly raised on those provisions
