Continued strong economic growth globally has led to capital markets issuance surpassing pre-credit crisis highs, although challenged by interest rate hikes, the retreat of central banks and levels of political uncertainty. An increasing focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors has also led to calls for further reporting transparencyfor green financing.

Deutsche Bank Trust and Agency Services  is an experienced partner in the Global Debt & Equity Capital Markets, providing a wide range of trustee, agency and other administrative services to all forms of debt including stand-alone Bonds, Medium Term Notes (“MTN”), Money Market Instruments (“MMI”), Equity-Linked /Convertible Bonds, Green Bonds and Schuldscheindarlehen.

The challenge

Whether raising capital in the short, medium or long-term, for general corporate purposes, refinancing or acquisitions, issuers have a range of debt structures available to them, each with its own set of obligations. Issuers need a global partner who can help them navigate the evolving administrative requirements of today’s global capital markets including issuing securities, making interest and principal repayments or roll-over, interest rate re-sets, managing corporate actions and protection of investor rights.
