Tailor-made solutions to
optimise your capital efficiency
The Structured Finance team acts as a strategic partner for our clients, providing added value products and tailor-made solutions to optimise their capital efficiency.
Structured Finance’s international team of 40 experienced, multi-disciplinary professionals arranges and participates in tailored structured finance solutions for corporate clients with specific financial objectives, who may face specific credit/solvency, fiscal, accounting or legal/ regulatory challenges.
The Structured Finance team offers three distinctive product categories:
Junior Capital includes all corporate financings which rank between (super) senior debt and straight equity. These could vary from preferred equity, profit participating loans, PIK loans, (mandatorily) convertible loans, pre-IPO financings, second lien, subordinated debt, share financings etc.
Vendor Finance involves assisting clients to promote their sales by providing financing for (potential) buyers of their products. This may include outright buyer financing, finance programmes (with limited recourse) to the seller, or structures in which risks are insured by third parties etc.
The drivers behind structured finance solutions can be very diverse. The main trends include companies whose focus is on their core business and aiming at improving returns on their assets. Transactions could focus on a reduction of working capital or removal of certain fixed assets from the balance sheet, for instance via sale and lease back or asset repo. In addition, we are seeing a growing need among our clients to monetise their contracts, i.e. future cash flows. We also structure funds to support suppliers or buyers of our clients and manage the related special purpose vehicles.
