We can support you with DCM financing advice and execution with products ranging from investment grade bonds, medium-term notes, commercial paper and private placements to hybrid capital and liability management.
With considerable experience across a wide range of sectors and transaction structures, we can give you access to the deep pools of liquidity offered by private note or loan investors around the globe.
Investment Grade & Structured Loans
We work with borrowers to underwrite, price and distribute syndicated loans. We provide acquisition financing to support our clients’ merger and acquisition (M&A) activity across a wide range of sectors and businesses, from corporates to infrastructure and highly bespoke project finance.
We can advise on capital structure optimisation and deliver solutions to proactively manage your liabilities through the execution of tender offers, debt exchanges and consent solicitations. Liability management transactions are often executed in conjunction with larger financing transactions, and we seamlessly integrate these within the Syndicate desk.
