Debt Advisory

Achieving the best financing solutions

We help our clients to raise capital, carry out refinancings, issue bonds, and access alternative and structured finance solutions that optimise terms and minimise risk.

Our Debt Advisory teams have detailed knowledge and insight across the debt markets including corporate debt, leveraged finance, structured finance, real estate finance and capital markets.

Our scale and transaction volumes keep us in constant dialogue with banks, investors, and ratings agencies, meaning we are best placed to support our client’s objectives in the market. 

As an independent adviser, we consider all debt options and capital providers - we have no conflicts of interest or preference of providers and therefore our objectives are fully aligned with those of our clients.

We have 150+ professionals with market-leading experience, completing 200+ transactions annually, with many long-standing relationships and high repeat business.

Our teams work closely with our M&A advisers, leveraging their sector insight. This scale and integration allow the unique access to the full spectrum of capital providers.
