Debt Capital Markets

We advise on the full spectrum of debt-related capital markets products and issues, including:

  • Bond issuances of all kinds, including high-yield bonds, convertible bonds, exchangeable bonds and hybrid bonds
  • Establishment and maintenance of debt issuance programs and debt-related structured products
  • Covered bonds, Asset Backed Securities and Securitisation
  • Regulatory capital issues for banks and insurance companies.

The total volume of our debt capital transactions amounts to several billion Swiss francs per annum. We regularly advise on transactions that have novel and innovative features, such as multi-currency bonds, foreign interest paying securities (FIPS), ALPS, hybrid and perpetual debt capital products, asset backed securities and repackagings. The strength of our Capital Markets practice and our in-depth knowledge of regulatory capital requirements for banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions have enabled us to work closely with a number of banking and insurance clients in developing novel hybrid and other innovative regulatory capital instruments. We have also been involved actively at the forefront of the development of the domestic securitisation market in Switzerland.
