arena4finance Launches New Asset Management course for Hotel Finance Professionals

New for 2016, arena4finance has launched ‘Asset Management, Hotel Valuations and Capital Budgeting’ course for those involved in the management of hotel assets wishing to enhance their knowledge of tools and techniques for valuing hospitality businesses, developing financing strategies, reviewing management contracts and franchise arrangements as well as benchmarking, KPI's and capital investment appraisal techniques.

Divided into four key topic areas, the course covers:

  • Hotel Asset Management strategies
  • Project evaluation techniques
  • Business valuations
  • Cost of capital and sensitivity analysis

‘Many of the major hotel groups tend to franchise or manage their hotel stock and liaise with owners to ensure the property delivers the required return on investment whilst increasing the asset value. A recent report from HVS, published in early January 2016, forecasts that there will be continuing strong demand for hotel acquisitions in the year ahead, encouraging private equity investors to dispose of their assets and this is coupled with continued consolidation amongst the branded hotel chains. This activity places additional pressure on asset managers to continually evaluate projects and calculate the business valuation. Our course focuses on demonstrating the techniques that can be used to gain insight from existing and forecasted data’ explained arena4finance Founder and Head of Professional Development, Debra Adams.
