A&M Debt Advisory supports Private Equity and Corporate clients through the economic cycle, providing high value-add advice on debt raising, capital structure optimisation and navigating challenging situations. Our deep relationships across the lender community enable clients to access a broad range of liquidity pools.

Our team includes highly respected ex-bankers and advisors with many years of expertise across the credit spectrum, working both with experienced borrowers and those approaching the debt markets for the first time.  Members of the team have worked on transactions across all different types of borrowing instruments in both the private and public capital markets.

Advice extends from optimising capital structures and reviewing financing options through to planning and execution including identifying potential lenders and investors, presenting the credit story and negotiating optimal terms and conditions for clients.

  • Strong academic background including a highly numerate skill set and experience in key relevant skill areas (e.g. credit analysis and financial modelling)
  • A keen desire to learn and develop in a meritocratic environment
  • Strong interpersonal skills and confidence, resilience and tenacity to source opportunities and to drive projects
