True Advisors & Partners

To optimize your success when pursuing capital-raising objectives, you need the right advisor. Our team helps navigate through challenging situations and “storied credits,” including cross-border/multi-currency facilities, proprietary deals with limited information, rapid timetables, acquisition financing in competitive auctions and dividend recapitalizations that return all invested equity (or more).

You’ll gain access to our relationships with over 500 capital sources worldwide and partner with engaged, senior-level support and a team of bankers with deep experience. Our Debt Advisory team enhances certainty of closing by generating multiple capital structure alternatives. We strive to provide clients with transparency and control over the financing process and instill confidence in the financing and terms via our robust process.

Integrity, trust and teamwork drive how we work with clients and with each other. Through extensive industry knowledge and strategic insights, we connect organizations to opportunities.

Since the recession, the main shift within the U.K. debt markets has clearly been the emergence of debt funds as prominent finance providers to the mid-market. Some market participants are currently considering bringing unitranche and ABL structures to the European markets. These structures are popular in the U.S., and it will be interesting in the next few years to see whether they will gain traction in the U.K. and the rest of Europe.
