We review the targeted capital structure in the context of market conditions and assist our clients in implementing the optimal strategy.

We also support our clients in all legal and regulatory aspects of the execution process.
- Risk Management
In our capital raising assignments, we assess all of the different risks derived from the client's activities and provide advice on how to best mitigate them. Typically, these will be market-related risks, which can be mitigated through financial instruments that limit exposure where possible. In some cases, investment in frontier markets also entails legal and repetitional risks. We help our clients apply the rigor of global best practice to ensure transparency and legitimacy in all transactions.
