Co-Head of the firm’s private equity sector, Robin Harvey commented: ““Our clients continue to benefit from our collaborative approach to client coverage through our integrated loan and high yield offering and our commitment to excellent deal execution. The quality and depth of our experience across the capital structure and sources of capital, is again demonstrated by these results.”

On top of bolstering our leveraged finance capabilities on the loans side, we were pleased to further strengthen our high yield offering with the appointment of Brad Weyland as a partner in our London office last year, increasing our depth and breadth of expertise throughout Europe.”
