Debt advisory

The UK debt funding market has become increasingly sophisticated in recent years with an increase in the number of lending institutions “open for business” as well as the type of debt finance available.

We advise companies through the process of raising debt finance – whether this be a refinancing of existing debt facilities to obtain better terms & conditions, or raising new finance to support a company’s growth or to fund an acquisition.

We offer a structured end-to-end approach to companies seeking to raise debt finance. This includes the following:
  • preparation of a debt funding memorandum which includes an overview of a company’s commercial operations and financial position for presentation to potential funders;
  • solicitation of indicative terms & conditions from funders;
  • negotiation of indicative terms including interest rate, fees, security package and any covenants; and
  • project management through to drawdown of funds.
In most cases we are able to reduce overall cost of debt finance for our clients as well as obtain a more appropriate suite of debt facilities.
