Our Capital Markets Group operates within Corporate Finance/M&A and is one of the firm’s fastest growing practices. As trusted advisors, we have the proven ability to engineer and execute financing solutions that are essential for growth and success. We offer access to financing in the public and alternative capital markets through the issuance of debt, equity, or hybrid securities. During its most recent fiscal year (ending March 2018), the Capital Markets Group’s ~40 professionals raised over $12.5 billion in commitments across ~40 transactions globally.

Thanks to our extensive relationships with alternative capital providers, we have the unique ability to raise customized capital for those situations where the public markets do not offer an attractive solution.
