AMICORP GROUP:
CAPITAL MARKET - AGENCY SERVICES

Amicorp Group Capital Markets

Since the global banking crisis, banks have had to adapt to and comply with a raft of regulations which initially led to a reduction in lending to small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs) and mid-cap corporates. This lending gap in the market was quickly filled by direct lending firms, Peer-2-Peer lending operators, and crowdfunding platforms offering alternative funding to lenders, helping sustain the global economy.

While the banks have since returned to lending in this space, these alternative lenders have offered quicker access to and cheaper funding, flexibility on tenures, amount size with covenant packages involving a wide range of assets.

 

AGENCY SERVICES

Amicorp’s Global Capital Markets Team can support banks and alternative lenders by being an independent and conflict-free provider of agency services. Our team provides services to several debt-related financings, including bonds, bilateral, club, and syndicated loans used to provide SMEs and mid-cap corporates. We can enter the transaction at the outset or later in its lifecycle as a successor agent. We have worked on simple to complex structures on bonds, securitizations, and performing and non-performing loans supporting our clients across the globe. We can also act as an escrow agent to aid Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), real estate, private placement, and restructuring transactions. At Amicorp, we see our role as working alongside our clients and transaction counterparties responsively and commercially.
