Capital and Debt Advisory
EY’s Capital and Debt Advisory team is uniquely qualified to provide independent financial advice to clients seeking corporate, structured finance and capital-raising or restructuring services across the spectrum of Irish Corporate and Real Estate credit markets.
The Real Estate Sector is grappling with multiple macro-economic headwinds including high inflation, significant interest rate increases, and environment and geo-political unrest. However, despite these challenges, the borrowing outlook within the Irish Real Estate sector looks cautiously optimistic. David Martin, Partner and Head of Debt Advisory looks at the results from EY Ireland’s Real Estate Borrower Outlook Survey, sharing insights on organisations preferable lender options, the significance of sustainable financing and what this means for both the office and residential space now and into the future.
EY’s Capital and Debt Advisory team, comprising former bankers and non-bank lenders maintains strong relationships with a wide variety of funding providers operating within the Irish market. Together with EY’s Global Capital and Debt Advisory practice, we have unique access to a deep pool of domestic and international capital providers currently active in Ireland.
Through our real time knowledge of comparable market transactions, we have the capability of running efficient and competitive financing processes, resulting in the best terms and conditions for clients. This can be successfully achieved through the negotiation of terms and conditions of new or existing debt facilities, including covenant amendments and/or waivers, repayment moratoriums and forbearance. Our experience and market presence gives relevant, up-to-date knowledge of all debt options, market terms, lender behaviour and how to drive best outcomes.
We will partner with you to provide up to date market intelligence through unparalleled local and access to our network of EY multi-disciplinary offerings. We act on behalf of clients seeking corporate, structured finance and capital-raising or restructuring services. Our team’s expertise and direct lending experience facilitates the identification of appropriate funders and provides our clients with access to the numerous funding options currently available in the Irish market.
A sector agnostic service line we work with a wide range of clients including Real Estate Investors and Developers (Commercial and Residential), Institutional Investors, Large & Mid-market Corporates (PLCs and Private Companies) and SME’s.
We provide seamless independent advice across domestic and international markets. We remain 100% neutral on funding markets and are able to put your key concerns and objectives ahead of any product or balance sheet return considerations. EY’s global network provides access, relationships and reach to Banks and Alternative Lenders throughout the world.
