Corporate Debt Advisory Services

Cairn Capital’s corporate advisory practice focuses on:

  • Providing strategic advice to expanding companies who require growth capital.
  • Arranging debt private placement transactions.
  • Advising corporates on public DCM transactions.

Transactions are built on investor relationships:

  • Cairn Capital has strong relationships with a wide range of institutional investors across the fixed income spectrum.
  • A selected list of institutional investors work on a repeat basis with Cairn Capital’s advisory team.

Focus on deliverability via bespoke strategies:

  • Bespoke terms are crafted around a borrower’s specific operational and financing requirements rather than “market” norms.

In addition, we have been involved in restructuring transactions including:

  • Structured investment vehicles
  • CMBS
  • Corporate debt

In everything we do, we apply extensive product structuring knowledge, work-out experience and a fundamental understanding of the credit and legal environment.
