Marlborough Partners, founded by William Allen, Jonathan Guise, David Parker and Romain Cattet, was today formally launched, providing specialist independent leveraged debt advisory services to European private equity firms and leveraged companies.
The team is regarded as one of the most experienced in the market. In their careers as debt advisers to date, the partners have advised on over 24bn euros of pan European debt financings, refinancings and restructurings across 65 completed transactions, five of which have recently closed.
The launch of Marlborough comes with the resurgence of private equity deals in 2010, the shift to stressed rather than distressed restructurings and ahead of the 2012-2015 corporate and leveraged debt ’refinancing wave’ - a time, in the view of Marlborough, when demand for capital is expected significantly to exceed supply and when the need for experienced debt advisers will be crucial in sourcing and structuring leveraged debt financings.
Marlborough Partners’ Jonathan Guise says: “People should not underestimate the implications of the fight for capital that lies ahead in the leveraged debt markets.”
