By Leigh Tomlinson

Wednesday 6th April 2022

The Cashflow Waterfall is a central component of any financial model in project finance, infrastructure finance and real assets. It is essential as it gives various stakeholders a clear understanding of the cashflows available at every level of seniority, with highlights including ‘Cash Flow Available for Debt Service’ (CFADS) – the ultimate metric for credit assessment.

It allows you to understand the priority of cash flows and where various parties sit and who is senior to who.
