who we are
A Message From Our Founder
We are here to manage your debt with experience
Founded in 2017, AMC Capital Advisory Services Limited (AMC) is a leading independent debt advisory firm that delivers impartial objective advice in order to maximise liquidity, minimise workload and optimise debt terms for its clients. AMC offers an unconflicted, client focused debt advisory service that draws on its extensive experience, transaction track record and long-standing relationships.
Nowadays, more than ever, it is critical that a company’s financing is aligned with its strategic ambitions. This could come in a number of forms. It may be a matter of refinancing existing debt, replacing a non-consenting lender, funding future growth, raising capital to support mergers and acquisitions (M&A). It may also be just raising debt to address shareholder or balance sheet opportunities. Equally, in these challenging times, you may want to address liquidity issues or consider interaction with lenders, given some degree of financial stress.
Through the team’s combined experience of over 30 years in the debt financing markets, AMC has established relationships with a vast, and rapidly evolving network of lenders across the market. Presently these are regional and international banks, credit funds and other sources of alternative capital.
In recent years the Asian debt financing landscape has developed and become increasingly diversified. Traditional international banks are encountering increased competition from local and alternative lenders in each and every market. Due to the depth and complexity of the debt liquidity pool, our role in helping clients navigate this becomes ever more relevant. Firstly, we take the time to fully understand our clients’ businesses and their strategic objectives. Then we help them access the most appropriate type and level of capital. Our role is to ensure that clients have a number of options available to them, consequently we have a proven track record of helping them secure better and more favourable debt financing terms than they could have done in the absence of an advisor.
