Debt & Capital Advisory

A global team of debt advisory specialists providing independent market-leading advice and expertise across the full range of debt products

Whatever your finance raising needs, whether you are looking to refinance, fund growth or realise equity value, we have the expertise to help you deliver a successful finance raising.

We work closely with our clients to identify, source and implement optimal financing solutions which will enable them to deliver their strategic objectives.

We have strong relationships across the global debt markets, allowing us to access liquidity across a diverse pool of lenders which is tailored towards the financing need. We use proprietary technology tools to track the debt markets, including our market-leading Debt Fund Tracker and ESG Debt Tracker, which ensures we access the right sources of liquidity to deliver optimal outcomes for our clients.

Many of our senior team are experienced ex-bankers, meaning that we know how lenders think and can ‘frame’ the financing ask to shape the credit story and to minimise delivery risk. We also have broad debt product expertise, ensuring we identify and source the optimal financing solution.

Our independence means that we provide our clients with truly objective expert advice on addressing their financing requirements.

As part of the PwC network, we can access market-leading sector expertise and deal specialists to address transaction-specific issues and add value for our clients.
