Course Details

Structuring Transactions: International Investments

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the “how and why” international investments take place and analyze the step-by-step process of how such transactions are executed by investment professionals and their lawyers. Thus, this course is at the nexus of financial engineering and corporate investment law. Students will embark on a process of first understanding the origins of the investment thesis, to considering the main structural elements and risk-mitigation measures that the investor and his/her lawyer seek to optimize, to finally crafting the actual legal and contractual architecture. One of our goals will be to understand why contracts are written the way they are, the purpose of certain contractual provisions and how each correlates with the fundamental economic model of our investment. This course is ideal for students both interested in working in private international investments (e.g. private equity) and also understanding the financial elements of these investments. Pre-Req: Business Associations and Contracts are required; Recommended pre-reqs: Finance, International Commercial Law, and Securities Regulation are recommended but not required.
