Our Debt Advisory team provides commercial and financial debt advice to corporate entities and public sector bodies in a range of sectors. Our engagements include advice on stand-alone transactions and solutions or as part of an integrated business plan, in both the project and corporate arenas.

While optimising the terms of debt finance should be a constant consideration for all companies, there are a number of specific scenarios where Grant Thornton can add value through structuring appropriate debt solutions over the long or short term. These include acquisition finance,project capitalisation, diversification of corporate capital structure, refinancing mature or onerous facilities, corporate restructurings, or simply raising capital against existing or new assets. 

Grant Thornton is not a funder and as such has no conflict of interest in the advice it offers. We provide cutting edge, impartial advice and a clear comparison of different funding solutions, identifying quantitative and qualitative implications of each and benchmarking these in the context of current market conditions. Where applicable, we manage competitive funding processes which ensure optimisation of solutions for our clients.

We focus on providing independent, objective advice. We do not participate in lending, ensuring our clients know our advice is focused solely on their best interests. We have no preferred financing solution,instead focusing on utilising our independence to produce or identify the optimal result. 

The team includes individuals with direct funding experience and individuals with strong track-records in providing advice on a range of both project and corporate financings. This experience provides a number of key advantages to our clients:

  • we can draw on our extensive local and global experience as an independent adviser and close working contacts with domestic and international debt providers and underwriters
  • we are active in the financial markets and can provide our clients with clear feedback on the current appetite of the markets for differing financing strategies

As a global advisor in infrastructure, project finance and M&A we are actively involved with financings and financial market participants around the world, enabling us to bring a wide range of financing solutions, perspectives and relationships to our clients.
