Why use a debt advisor
Nearly a decade since the financial crisis struck, the European funding market has changed significantly and the debt market has grown exponentially, with hundreds of new alternative lenders now ready to finance company growth plans. This environment has in turn created a part for debt advisors who can play an integral role in guiding company owners through this complex range of choices when it comes to determining a suitable capital structure for their needs.
We spoke to some industry experts to get their opinions on the current conditions of the debt advisory market. Andy Stewart from JCRA talks about the impact of regulatory change and the effect of continued low interest rates, whilst Colin Wright, European Capital explains the advantages of debt funds over banks.
2016 has been marked by considerable volatility in global equity and bond markets amid concerns over China’s growth slowdown, the impact of sustained lower global oil prices and Brexit. As such, European banks and funds have become more cautious of certain cyclical and discretionary spending linked sectors with lenders tightening terms and reducing appetite.
