The right people with the right approach

Our structured finance experts regularly advise on complex, highly structured, tax based deals. These include finance and operating leases, innovative sale and lease back arrangements, cross-border leasing transactions, cross-border principal-to-principal transactions, structured property financing, subordinated and mezzanine debt arrangements, credit wrapping, and deals involving the use of synthetic securities, hybrid securities and credit derivatives. We focus on combining our technical expertise with clear thinking and commerciality to provide clients with cost effective, timely, uncomplicated solutions.

Our structured finance team works closely with our tax team, which includes some of Australia's leading tax experts. Together they ensure that any relevant income tax, stamp duty or GST issues are covered and that transaction outcomes are optimised from a tax perspective.
