Raising new debt on favourable terms, or renewing existing facilities, has become tougher, even for the strongest borrowers.

Borrowers need to realistically appraise the nature of their present banking relationships, evaluate alternatives, understand their true cost of capital, and approach debt in the context of an effective overall capital management strategy.

Poorly structured debt facilities can result in reduced profitability, increased financial risk and wasted management time.

Boards, and their CEOs, CFOs and treasurers increasingly appreciate the need for an independent view on important funding decisions and advice on funding strategies, debt procurement and capital management.
