What is Project Refinancing?

In the context of projects, refinancing refers to renegotiating or replacing the existing loan terms for a project. This typically involves securing a new loan with different conditions than the original one. There are a couple of main reasons why this might happen:

Interest rates

If interest rates go down overall, then refinancing can be a way to get a lower interest rate on the project loan, saving money on future payments.


Loan terms

Refinancing can also be used to change the terms of the loan in other ways, such as by extending the repayment period, converting a fixed-rate loan to an adjustable-rate loan (ARM), or vice versa.
