Capital Markets

The capital markets are an engine for growth, a major source of funding for businesses, banks and sovereign entities.

As one of the top global advisors in this area, we advise clients on some of the market's most complex and innovative deals, whether raising money by issuing debt (usually bonds) or equity (shares), or through securitisation. We have continued to cement our position working on market leading transactions across all product types and all geographical areas spanning Europe, the US, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.

If you want to understand the complexities of the global financial markets, this is the practice to join. The extent of your involvement in transactions will reflect their variety. You may be meeting representatives from a global investment bank for one deal and drafting documents for a multinational securitisation on another. A third may involve helping to manage a major transaction. At every stage you'll be working with established specialists, allowing you to benefit from their expertise at first hand.
