Corporate Banking and Finance

We work with borrowers, lenders and counterparties on banking, securitisation and other financing transactions.

By working alongside our clients we develop a thorough understanding of their business. This means our advice is truly strategic, taking into account a client’s short and longer-term funding requirements while also addressing any impact on the organisation’s other business objectives.  

The firm has a network of contacts in the other global financial centres, including Hong Kong, London, Munich, Paris and the US. Regular interaction ensures our teams are up-to-date with the latest developments in these markets.

Through our work for lenders and borrowers on corporate transactions, we provide our clients with insights into market sentiment. This in turn is reflected in our advice on bankability.

We also work with lenders in their finance transactions in the maritime industry, covering ship mortgages and other security arrangements.
