Raising capital in public markets

From initial public offerings (IPOs) and securities tokens offerings (STOs), or executing debt offerings (including green, social and sustainability (linked) instruments) to ongoing regulatory reporting or deals and other transformational events, our Capital Markets team can help you identify new ways to access markets and capital or to focus investment where it most matters.

Our independent professionals equip you with the objective and unbiased guidance that you need so that you can make decisions for growing your business.

Organisations and private equity owners typically seek to access the debt capital markets in order to grow their business through acquisitions, deleverage their financial position or take advantage of favorable interest rates. Our clients, when issuing public bonds regularly require expert, hands-on advice to execute a transaction in an often challenging timetable. We draw upon our diverse capabilities and extensive global network to support and work with our clients and their advisors during the process. We help by thinking creatively to solve issues related to the presentation of financial information, and by sharing our insights to facilitate an efficient and smooth process.

  • Driving project coordination for the transaction and providing practical, commercial and timely advice to achieve transaction milestones dates
