Capital Markets Advisory

Capital Markets Advisory

As seasoned bankers with significant experience of executing capital markets transactions, we are in a privileged position to advise corporates looking to access the market.  We can add significant value to those seeking to raise finance either for the first time or for a particular strategic project.

In particular, Ziad Awad has executed more than half a Trillion dollars of capital markets transactions and has the reputation and credibility in the Markets that would be an asset for any issuer.

New or Infrequent Borrowers looking to access the Debt Capital Markets would benefit greatly from having an Independent Advisor at their side. As the Advisor, we act as an extension of the client's own finance team. Similarly, when executing an IPO, having the support of an independent financial advisor ensures a smoother process with significant cost and time savings. With more than 20 years of Capital Markets experience, we create real economic value for new issuers.

 

An independent Capital Markets Advisor provides an extension of the in-house finance team and ensures the senior management and the board receive unbiased advice without the conflicts inherent to banks who need to protect their own capital and also have a duty of care towards  investors in equities and bonds.

 

As IPO financial advisors, we act as in-house advisors and assist in the choice of underwriting banks, preparation of the equity story, valuation and help ensure the smooth running of the entire preparation and execution process

As Debt advisors, we prepare the company for raising debt from the banks or from the capital markets
