Debt capital markets update

Date 25 March 2020

Type Investment Banking

The UK Debt Capital Markets team have been running a calling programme amongst their direct lending contacts to assess the reaction to events and their scope to be a continued source of liquidity. As the team discuss in this update, portfolio management and short-term caution will be the order of the day. As long-term sounding boards for our clients, we recognise that the current situation is likely to bring liquidity pressures, both positive and negative, depending upon the industry in which you operate. Fortunately, the capital markets for SMEs and mid-sized businesses are far more flexible today than immediately after the last financial crash.
