Our dedicated banking and finance practice can advise borrowers and lenders on the issues that surround the re/insurance industry
In today's increasingly complex financial markets, our dedicated banking and finance practice is well placed to advise both borrowers and lenders on the issues that surround the re/insurance industry. Undertaking a measure of due diligence, and then understanding the impact of the proposed financing and strength of the security to be given or obtained, is vital to a successful lending. Clyde & Co has a unique perspective on this and is therefore able to ensure that the expectations of both lenders and borrowers are met.
Our client base extends across the financial and insurance sector including banks, building societies, finance boutiques, insurance brokers, insurers, underwriting agents, capital providers, export credit agencies and asset managers.
Our banking and finance team has already amassed considerable experience of providing advice to large and complex organisations but we also have several distinctive features which together set us apart in our legal offering. These include our specialist knowledge of Lloyd’s, the PRA and FCA and the regulatory framework that the UK insurance industry operates in and how this impacts on banking and finance transactions within the industry and our specialist experience of the structural and regulatory aspects of the Islamic insurance sector (Takaful), including in relation to issues of Shari’a compliance.
Our wide ranging expertise includes the following areas:
- FAL Letters of Credits into Lloyd's
- Leveraged/acquisition finance
- Debt restructuring and insurance related work outs
- Asset backed finance
- Emerging markets and structured financing
- Islamic finance
- General corporate lending
- Regulatory capital instruments
We place as much emphasis on practical experience as on our legal know-how. Our strengths lie in our determination to get to know our client's insurance business from the bottom up, our commitment to providing maximum efficiency at competitive prices and our truly seamless and global service.
