The team provides several comprehensive financial products including Corporate Advisory Services, which are housed in
our Corporate Finance team.
Arranging and underwriting of debt packages, incorporating hybrid debt instruments, for the purpose of enabling clients to acquire target companies in the resource sector. The offering includes the design, structuring and implementation of innovative funding solutions, including interest rate hedging programmes and inflation hedges as well as cross currency swaps in order to protect cash flows to service the debt.
Developing innovative finance structures, including tax-efficient options and the embedding of other financial instruments.
Originating, arranging and implementing financial transactions supported by export credit agencies, developmental finance institutions and political risk providers. The beneficiaries are usually limited-recourse projects and existing entities across all industry sectors and various jurisdictions.
Funding of oil and gas projects worldwide by co-arranging project finance debt with other syndicate members.
Extensive experience in customising metal hedging solutions to meet client, shareholder and price protection needs. Most base and precious metals can be hedged using a wide variety of vanilla and exotic derivative instruments to structure both long- and short-term hedging programmes.
Allowing for the forward purchase of key metals, thereby creating immediate liquidity for mining companies as an alternative to project financing.
Arranging and underwriting of greenfields and brownfields projects with limited recourse project finance debt. The project finance package would typically incorporate the design, structuring and execution of the senior and standby debt facilities, the commodity and interest rate hedging structures and the overall transaction management and day-to-day monitoring of the life of the transaction, using innovative funding solutions based on an in-depth understanding of the local and international mining industries.
