On 8th September, Nick Flitterman, one of Portland’s founding partners and its Head of Telecoms, participated on a conference panel at Euroconsult’s World Satellite Business Week in Paris discussing the issues and solutions surrounding raising finance for new and early stage projects in the satellite sector.

Moderated by the editor of Satellite Finance, Ed Ansell , and joined by other high profile panellists from Coface, Société Générale and O3b Networks (one of Portland’s’ clients), the discussion covered topics such as timing and method of approach to banks, consideration of financial market conditions, the importance of good preparation, and the optimal use of Export Credit in the structuring of financing solutions.
