World-class private funding
Credit Suisse consistently ranks as a top firm in private placements1. Our team is uniquely positioned to leverage the bank’s global resources and to match our clients’ financing objectives with high-quality financial and strategic investors. These skilled specialists have significant experience in raising private capital for late-stage private companies, public entities, corporate spin-offs, acquisition financing and for companies across a range of industries, including oil & gas, power, renewable energy, financial services, health care, industrials, services, real estate, telecom/media/technology and consumer/retail.
Our corporate finance-driven solutions are also complemented by a distinctive marketing approach. We have one of the financial industry’s most effective distribution platforms, including relationships with hedge funds, private equity funds, insurance companies, pension funds, family offices, sovereign wealth funds and bank proprietary principle investment desks. This broad distribution structure creates better pricing, promotes rapid completion of transactions and minimizes management's time away from their business.
Since 1997, Credit Suisse has closed more than $30 billion in traditional private financings, placing an array of securities from common stock to investment grade debt. Because our private placement professionals are constantly structuring, marketing and negotiating deals, they have access to critical market intelligence that can help clients successfully complete their transactions.
