Deep network of debt funders looking for projects
Support from start to financial close across all facets of the transaction
Experienced Project Financiers

  • Do you require assistance in procuring debt financing or making contact with lenders? Having worked in Investment Banking, we have access to both Australian and international lenders.
  • Already in contact with a lender, but need assistance in reaching financial close? We can assist and guide you on all tasks required: i.e. producing the extensive due diligence required (Technical, Legal, Market, Insurance, Risk, Social Governance & Environmental, FX, Hedging, etc), completing all loan documentation and all CP’s to financial close.
  • Specific to the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (www.NAIF.gov.au) we have worked with two clients to access more than $900m of funding  – hence we are very familiar with this process and have executed the whole process and submitted all documents required by NAIF, on behalf of the client, thus letting the client get on with running the company. 
  • Whether it be a vanilla corporate financing, or an international ECA financing or a more complex project financing, we have seasoned debt advisers and project financiers available to assist.
  • One month or a one year mandate. Whatever the timeframe  – we can assist you in reaching financial close.
  • Project Finance, in particular, and the financial modelling of, can be complex. Don’t leave it up to inexperienced advisers who’ve not worked in that field. 
  • There is a large overlap of Project Finance with the Mining, Energy & Infrastructure sectors , thus please visit our page here, to see our experience in that field
  • The founder of Rock Financial Advisory, Emma McPherson previously worked in the Project Finance departments of Bank of America and BNP Paribas for more than 10 years, and thus brings a wide knowledge of PF transactions-some listed below
