Applying Loan Structure Techniques

Loan Structure Applications is a one-day workshop that examines the distinction between short-term and long-term working capital needs, funding growth in fixed assets and structuring loans for a client with multiple borrowing requirements. The course emphasizes the importance of understanding the relationship between a company's ability to generate funds internally and its reliance on bank financing. Using a case study format, learners build on their existing loan structuring skills and apply more advanced concepts to propose and evaluate loan structures that are appropriate for various client situations.


After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Identify and explain key loan structuring considerations
  • Evaluate loan requests to support short and long-term working capital needs and growth in fixed assets
  • Use a thorough understanding of a company's cash flow in conjunction with multiple loan structuring techniques to propose a transaction that mitigates risk while meeting customer needs
  • Structure a loan package for a client with multiple borrowing needs


  • Business cash cycles and the implications for loan structure
  • How to match facilities to borrowing needs
  • Matching repayment schedules to repayment sources
  • The distinction between short-term and long-term working capital needs
