Investment Banking

Investment Banking

Our Investment Banking teams provide corporations, financial institutions, financial sponsors, family offices, sovereigns, supra-national entities and agencies with advice and financial solutions to support their strategic development, from financing through the public and private markets, to acquiring or divesting assets, to managing their balance sheet and adapting their capital structure.

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.

Strategic Equity Capital Markets

We advise, structure and execute solutions for corporations and strategic investors along their entire equity life cycle from pre-IPO to delisting, incorporating equity investments and divestments, equity financing and monetization, convertible bond issuance, equity hedging, employee benefits plan management and cash yield enhancement. We also provide a global equity distribution platform through a multi-brokerage model covering Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the US.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We draw on our international multi-boutique M&A model to provide clients with independent advice to help them plan, execute and finance strategic development opportunities through transactions such as acquisitions, divestments, mergers, tie-ups, joint ventures and asset swaps.
