Our core capabilities include originating, structuring and arranging capital for both financial sponsor and corporate clients and, thereafter, portfolio and balance sheet management.
We have a flexible financing approach and seek to customise debt solutions that fit the client's needs. Structures are typically senior secured debt and range from term loans, unitranche, RCF, capex / acquisition facilities with the ability to provide underwrites and/or bridge structures where a client need exists. We also provide debt capital market solutions from the same team. Target returns range from gross yields of 3.0% to 10.0%+. This provides the team a wide platform to optimise origination efforts and to deliver client financing certainty to clients across the investment cycle.
