Bespoke Support on Restructuring for Investment Banks

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the global economy. Key sectors have been severely impacted. Disruption in economic activity, coupled with high debt levels, has made borrowers vulnerable to the risk of default and bankruptcy. Bond and loan default rates are likely to rise further in 2021 to 8% and 7%, respectively, from c.1% prior to the pandemic. These factors have led to an increased demand for restructuring and debt advisory services.

Acuity Knowledge Partners enables Investment banks face this challenge of a sudden rise in demand by providing support across the restructuring and debt advisory spectrum. We enable our clients win more mandates and expand their outreach by supporting towards insolvency and reorganisation support, liquidity management, creditor advisory and turnaround activities."
