Perspectives that are impartial and qualified

Our team of debt advisory professionals provides independent, highly qualified debt advice to financial sponsors active in the European market and their portfolio companies.

We have helped to arrange more underwritten financing commitments on behalf of financial sponsors than any other equivalent market player since the start of the liquidity crisis in July 2007. 

Our strong, longstanding relationships with banks and other institutions give us an understanding of which lenders (senior and mezzanine) have a genuine underwriting appetite.

We are the leading financial-sponsor leveraged-debt advisor in Europe, with a significant breadth of experience across the full spectrum of debt capital products:

  • LBOs
  • Dividend recaps
  • Staple finance
  • Add-ons
  • Growth facilities
  • Corporate recaps
  • Corporate acquisitions

In addition, our direct relationships with alternative capital providers position us to access liquidity in situations not suitable for typical bank financing.
