Together with leading academics, they assess the costs and benefits of project finance, non-recourse lending, alternative syndication structures, securization of export receivables, bullet bonds, local financial participation, offshore escrow accounts, multilateral guarentees, and public and private political risk insurance. They navigate the cutting edge of new "deal structures" including credit derivatives, default swars, credit- linked notes, total return swaps, and two-way trades of " bite-sized" risk units.
