Organisation

Description department/team
The Debt Advisory team of AFS Group, currently 2 FTE, acts as an independent arranger of debt. In the process of arranging we use our structuring expertise to provide tailor made solutions, enabling our clients to achieve their goals. Through our extensive network of both traditional and alternative lenders we are able to match the specific needs of our clients. Our objective is to create the perfect fit between a client and a lender.

The effects of regulation are disrupting and fragmenting the debt market. Traditional lenders are repositioning and specialized new players are rapidly entering the market. This creates a dynamic playfield in which AFS Group as a fully independent arranger provides added value through process management, structuring solutions and lender identification. Through its other desks, AFS Group has strong origination power on both the lender and issuer side.

AFS Group is active in the following asset classes: corporate & leveraged finance, export finance, real estate finance and renewable energy finance. Target debt offerings range from EUR 10 million to EUR 100 million.
