Debt Capital Markets
Allen & Overy has debt capital markets (DCM) experts in all the key financial centres worldwide, thereby providing our clients with international expertise, local knowledge and all-round market insight on cross-border and domestic transactions.
We advise issuers and underwriters on the full spectrum of debt capital market transactions, including standalone bonds and debt programmes, tier 1 and hybrid capital, equity-linked instruments, liability management, private placements, warrants, high yield and Islamic structures.
We have been instrumental in nearly all the major developments in the modern financial markets, starting with the first ever eurobond issue in the 1960s. Of the most recent developments, we have a particular track record in liability management, regulatory capital and capital raisings for financial institutions, debt issues by emerging markets issuers, sovereign debt offerings and we have been involved in numerous landmark transactions since the development of the offshore RMB market. Our excellence is reflected through our top tier position in all major legal directories, Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg debt legal adviser league tables and numerous independent market surveys and awards.
In addition to our DCM team in New York, we provide our clients with one of the deepest and most sophisticated U.S. practices on the ground in EMEA and Asia. Our team advises on the U.S. aspects of all debt capital market transactions, including SEC-registered offerings, Rule 144A and Regulation S offerings, high-yield offerings and convertible bonds. The team is further complemented by experts in U.S. tax, U.S. financial regulation and U.S. bankruptcy/restructuring.
