Debt advisory


Expertise in all financial affairs.

What’s the best way for me to finance the growth of my business? Is my funding strategy still compatible with my business plan? How should I deal with upcoming repayments? How should I respond to a breach of covenant? Funding questions regularly pose a challenge for company directors and businesses. As an effective and experienced financial advisor, FalkenSteg can help you answer these questions and reach the best possible funding solution.

We are happy to offer you financial-advisory services on any finance-related matters, including growth financing, acquisition financing, refinancing, amend to extend and recapitalisations. We also advise companies undergoing different stages of crisis situations, for example on renegotiating covenants, capital to bridge liquidity gaps and restructuring of liabilities. Experts with many years of experience as lenders and financial advisors will be on hand to deal with any of these issues.

As an independent financial advisor, we consider the full set of possible funding methods and leverage our wide range of opportunities for accessing all our national and international funding partners. We have enjoyed trusting and successful working relationships with commercial banks, debt funds and asset financiers for a number of years, allowing us to offer a funding concept tailored to your particular situation and appropriate for the needs of your company and business plan.

In addition to creating the funding concept, our advisory services also cover the selection of funding partners and communication with these parties, as well as guidance and support for the respective decision-making processes through to the negotiation of term sheets and documentation.
