The FFA has provided some sneak-preview information on FFA University 2023. Training session 1.0 will once again take place virtually on September 21, and training session 2.0 will be in person in New York on October 5. These intensive full-day training sessions are designed for both bankers and lawyers transacting under U.S. law who are either relatively new to Fund Finance or seeking an in-depth training course.
The beginner course, 1.0, will cover everything from understanding fund formation and structures to subscription facility credit documentation and investor issues. You can find more information here. The virtual session will be followed by a live reception in New York hosted by Reed Smith.
The more advanced session, 2.0, is designed for mid-level bankers and lawyers and will cover advanced issues in subscription facilities, NAV loan structures, Collateralized Fund Obligations and the PE business model. A complimentary networking reception sponsored by Sidley Austin LLP and KBRA will follow. A detailed curriculum will be announced shortly.
Stay tuned for additional details.
