Debt Capital Markets

Debt Capital Markets

The Finnish debt capital market has developed tremendously since the financial crisis, and the market offers a viable funding option for an increasing number of companies. Issuers and lead managers value how smoothly run our bond projects are and our experience of drafting issue documentation, such as prospectuses.

We have been involved in the majority of Finnish debt capital market issues in recent years. Our expertise is of particular benefit to our clients in pioneering arrangements that shape market practices and new products. For example, we have advised in the Finnish market’s first hybrid bond, secured bond, warrant programme, multi-issuer bond and AT1 instrument. We have advised clients in issuing of high-yield bonds, which are beginning to make their way onto the Finnish market. We also participate actively in developing market regulation and practices, for example, by participating in drafting the model terms and conditions for bonds published by the Confederation of Finnish Industries and preparing Finnish legislation related to bondholders’ agents.
