  • Summary

We are pleased to deliver a new session for HEI Directors of Finance, University Secretaries, Chairs of F&GP and relevant colleagues which will run as a webinar on Tuesday 4 May 2021.

Through 2020 and moving through 2021 we have seen an increasing number of providers going to market to renew and / or secure finance. Lenders to the sector are visibly adapting their lending criteria and requirements and there is some brinkmanship across the various stakeholders in a ‘scramble for security’ given the conflicting priorities of HEIs, pension trustees and lenders.

Financial constraints have forced some HEIs into focused options appraisals whilst others are revisiting the student journey as well as root and branch operational efficiency (support structures as well as academic).  Some of our work has clearly informed policy and we will present a number of case studies that will not ‘predict the future’ but may shine some light on it.  Whether looking at efficiency gains, negotiating finance or simply mid-term strategic planning, attendees should benefit from the knowledge sharing from a highly experienced sector team.
