Credit Trading & Sales

We have Primary, Secondary and Structuring capabilities that help our clients solve problems and deliver their business plans throughout the entirety of the economic cycle.

We are asset experts in both financials and corporates and our expertise covers the entire credit ratings spectrum from investment grade through to distressed credit. We have built a particularly strong reputation as lead arrangers and book-runners for Sterling bonds and for providing Colour, Content & Ideas in our target credits.

Support throughout the transaction life cycle

We’ve demonstrated our ability to support bridge-to-bonds and have successfully introduced a number of first time high yield bond issuers to the market.

As your banking partner, we’ll support you throughout the whole transaction life cycle – from origination to trade execution and risk management, connecting borrowers with investors and bringing together primary market as well as secondary market distribution.

Access to all major markets

Our Investment Grade Corporate and High Yield borrowers have access to all major capital markets and investors through our credit trading hubs in London, Singapore and Stamford. We also offer loan and distressed trading, ranging from the distribution of leveraged loans in the primary market to market making for loans and distressed credit, and single asset financing.

IG and HY issuers benefit from our strong market maker position in emerging markets

In addition to our distribution capabilities in the GBP, EUR and US markets, we’ve steadily built our Emerging Markets business. We can support you in multiple securities across CEEMEA and LATAM, and we’re particularly strong in EUR denominated bonds across Asia, LATAM and CEE.
