Finance

Leverage the strength of our specialised lending business with tailored finance solutions to expand your business, locally and globally.

Access capital from local and global markets

There is now a greater number of financing solutions to support your acquisition, refinancing and growth plans – good news if you’re looking for more flexibility in your debt structures.

Our Structured Finance options include Leverage Finance, Corporate Banking Origination, Financial Sponsors Coverage and Sectors. We also offer non-traditional funding solutions for mid-market corporates such as unitranche debt and asset-based lending.

Unitranche debt
Unitranche’s financing structures combine senior and mezzanine debt into one blended product. Unitranche debt offers flexibility and is designed more for companies with stable business models – those with a higher level of predictable free cash generation.

In unitranche debt, you can find funding deals that only have one financial covenant, as opposed to traditional bank structures that might have three or four. And because you might only have two counterparties to deal with, this can assist with speed of execution and efficiency in key bidding processes.

Asset-based Lending
Asset-based Lending (ABL) is another flexble solution for working capital. It’s been used in Australia by corporates and sponsors alike to refinance funding structures. It’s designed for working capital-intensive businesses, where the value of the enterprise is most often tied to its inventory and receivables. HSBC’s expertise and roots in trade financing means we’re in a strong position to provide well-crafted ABL solutions.
