We seek to understand the intricacies of your debt requirements and use our knowledge of the various debt markets to assist in ensuring that your financing needs are met as efficiently as possible.
Our aim is to work as part of your treasury team rather than as semi-detached advisers. We share our expertise with clients and provide advice which extends beyond the black letter law. By using our detailed knowledge of the institutions, structures, trends and pricing in the different debt markets to best effect on our clients’ behalf we are able to add tangible value to our clients' businesses.
We work with treasury teams to optimise debt capital structures and to take advantage of arbitrage opportunities across different debt markets and geographics.
We work closely with our expert teams across capital markets, corporate and tax ensuring our guidance is seamless through all stages of transactions.
