Leveraged Finance

Delivering thought-provoking ideas and flawless execution.

KeyBanc Capital Markets® provides a wealth of knowledge, helping us bring innovative financial solutions to the table so you can take advantage of every opportunity.

Financing leveraged acquisitions, privatizations and other strategic transactions for both financial sponsors and corporations requires specialized expertise. Whether you are a financial advisor, a company seeking financing or an investor seeking strategic opportunities, we leverage our deep relationships and capabilities in this space to provide rapid decision making and certainty of execution.

We take the time to understand our borrowers’ business goals and financial needs and develop a structure and syndication strategy to meet those needs.

Issuing Clients

Financial sponsors, public companies and private companies are all among our leveraged finance borrowers. We provide guidance, ratings advisory services and execution expertise that ensures we put the right high-yield financial package together. Our expert team can provide high yield loans and bonds determining the right balance for your needs. Our products include:

Senior Debt

  • Revolving credit facilities
  • Asset-based loans
  • Institutional first and second lien term loans
  • Senior/subordinated loans

Bond Debt

  • High-yield bonds
  • Corporate bonds
  • Municipal bonds

Investors in non-investment grade debt typically have very specific credit, return, geographic and industry sector profiles. With a dedicated coverage effort, we get to know your requirements. We work regularly with financial institutions seeking investment opportunities, as well as institutional investors (CLOs, insurance companies, hedge funds, private credit investment groups, and more).
