DEBT ADVISORY

« Bringing your projects to fruition with tailor-made financing »

Debt Advisory refers to the provision of advice, step-by-step support and intermediation in the debt markets that a company may need throughout its existence. This expertise includes the definition of structuring recommendations, the implementation of competitive processes and assistance in the negotiation of financing documents.

The objective of our teams is to guide the companies we work with in their choice of financing in order to carry out their projects in the most personalised way possible, whether it be for acquisition financing, refinancing or debt restructuring operations.

Why use a debt advisor ?

As a merchant bank, we have a thorough understanding of the range of financing products available on the market, the prices and the lenders’ appetite for each product at any given time. Our team, made up of financiers, former company directors and former bankers, is used to managing the process of finding financing. We do this by optimising both the conditions and the timing of the execution, while bringing security to the operation through our approved partners.

of your development strategy

 

Whether your company is targeting acquisition finance, refinancing or debt restructuring, at Wingate we believe that choosing the right financing tool at the right time is essential to ensure the controlled development of your business over the long term. Our teams are at your disposal for a free initial diagnosis.
