Debt Capital Markets

We support corporations, financial institutions, sovereigns, supra-national entities and agencies in financing their activities through the euro and dollar bond markets across Europe, the Middle-Est, Asia Pacific and the US. We provide issuers with the full spectrum of bond formats including senior unsecured, covered bonds, subordinated issues and private placements, all in both traditional and green & sustainable formats.

Acquisition & Strategic Finance

We provide integrated acquisition and leveraged finance solutions to corporations and financial sponsors. We support these clients in financing their strategic development – including acquisitions, investments (majority and minority stakes, direct and secondary fund financing, and general partners financing), refinancing and shareholding reorganization – by creating solutions based on loans, high-yield bonds and private placements.
