Within the continually evolving UK and European debt financing landscape, we support both private and public companies in structuring, sourcing and executing debt financing transactions.


The UK and European debt financing landscape is continually evolving and becoming increasingly sophisticated, primarily as a result of increased competition from new and alternative lenders to traditional Clearing Banks. This has resulted in significantly more liquidity being available for borrowers.

Whilst the number of market participants remains at an all-time high, lenders are applying increased scrutiny to transactions given the high inflationary and interest rate environment. This cautionary outlook has placed even greater emphasis on the role of debt advisors to ensure the optimal outcome for clients. Despite the selective deployment of debt in the current market, there remains strong lender appetite to support suitable borrowers and transactions.

Services

We are able to support clients in accessing the debt markets in a number of circumstances, which often dovetail with a wider approach to a capital raise through other Cavendish Group services.  Services that we deliver include:

  • Acquisition Financing
  • Refinancing
  • Recapitalisation
  • Working Capital Solutions
  • Growth Capital
  • Asset Based Financing
  • Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) Lending
  • Total Capital Solutions
