Technical risks at the stages of investment

How to define simply the ‘Technical Risks’ during investments? Technical means engineering decisions and solutions, risks means that how they effect on your money, how they effect on your financial model.. Basic principles of projects: have to be completed in the minimum time, within a minimum budget but everything should be in the safest side.

Why, even though, today, all the professions are interacting each other, we still watching in the market that technical people are not interested in the macro-economy and the people who are dealing with financial issues have a lot of bother with engineering terminology and the process?

Main stages of an any investments: Technical surveys, design, expertise, construction permission. construction, connecting infrastructure lines installation of equipment and opening.

If in any financial model, we test the minimum payback period, we should not only test but also be aware about the technical risks.

Let’s look what kind of technical risks may happen in your project and how to avoid them to keep and stay in the safe side.


Aesthetics and safety of an industrial building design

What is aesthetics in general conception? From our professional point of view, 3 simple things: Color, Geometry and Function. If you combine these 3 things into 1, you will agree with your subconscious. Because subconscious says that if something disturbs your eyes, it’s most probably not safe and vice versa .

How an industrial building can be both aesthetic and functional?
Which industrial building we like most in Russia?
Do not escape from aesthetics, escape from ordinariness.


Basic macroeconomic terms for engineers

Why an engineer needs at least a basic knowledge of economics? Because everything they do is related with the money. Where is the money for an engineer in their routine day at work? What do they mean for an engineer when somebody talks about inflation, GDP, key rate, interest rate, currency risks and so on..?

Every project has 3 principles. The project should be completed in safest, the fastest, cheapest way. In this phrase, something is hidden: "Cost of Money". Should the Cost control and Planning engineers duties be limited with a simple excel file?

The thin line between engineers and economist are that how they define the project: Economists defines the project as Salary, Capital, Resources, Technology While for an Engineer, Man-hour, Material, Machinery, Method

Trust us and combine them in your work. The only way to beat your competitors legally, passes through here.


Monetary and economy policy of governments

The main duty of the central banks is to balance the economy by using the monetary policy in the country. In this video we mention about: Inflation, unemployment and the key rate of Central bank. And will tell about its role in investment activities in the country. At the end of video, we will make an analogy with a pool and will explain the behavior of macro-economical parameters such as hyperinflation, GDP, unemployment and inflation, showing the Pascal's closed container liquid behaviors.


What a bank looks to investment, What is their roles?

Banks play one of the main roles in the chain of economy. They support you and your business under some definite conditions. The only condition for them is that you pay back the money you borrowed, within the time you promised, adding an early calculated the interest rate. In this video , we share our opinions about; A Bank's role and risks in an investment.

Why the classical equity / loan ratio is important?

How much important to use equity and the loan?

Difference between Investment Finance and Project Finance.


What an Investor Wants Regarding Investment Project

There are 4 main parameters in financial models to where both the investors and the banks look at: Pay-back period, NPV, IRR, and the break-even point of the project.

We mostly concentrated in video the meaning of "Cost of Time!"

Because time goes faster than we imagined before...


Who we are & What we do? About MonDef

Because we are dealing with intellectual business. That’s why, we may not have any conflict of interests with anybody, any parties, any establishments.How to act as a ‘Bridge’ between investors and banks?

We are not only working with the banks by monitoring their ongoing, already financed, investment projects. But also, with investors by finding for them: Best location for their factory, Optimum infrastructure conditions of the land plot, Best government supports which takes into account the segments of the production which should be matched with the programs of the government, Best finance of the loan to realize the project.

We believe that to manage all these items effectively, the best is all of them should be controlled under one roof. Because every item takes others responsibility. Therefore, it is necessarily to study in a ‘tailor made’ format.
