Due to new banking regulations (such as Basel III and CRD IV), the appetite for traditional bank lending is changing. Yet, many new funding alternatives are available for corporates, such as European private placements, listed bonds in local markets and supply chain finance.
To safeguard the best interests of our clients, we arrange the funding process independently. We have developed a three-phase methodology for this, which includes understanding the funding requirements of our clients and assessing different funding alternatives.
Please find here the Zanders roadmap to a typical financing project.
Our Debt Advisory service has developed proprietary tools and templates for the arranging process, which include a long-term financial planning model, templates for information memoranda and process letters. We also have insights in the prevailing market conditions for different instruments.
Furthermore, we are proud to be a member of the Loan Market Association (LMA). While very few consultancies are associated to the LMA, we feel that we can better bridge the gap between the arranging and documentation phase, which makes the whole arranging process more efficient and less prone to undesired outcomes.
Our broad debt advisory experience includes arranging bonds, notes, syndicated loans, club deals, private placements and other funding instruments.
