Welcome -

With recovery in financial markets starting to take hold it is an exciting time to launch our Global Financial Markets Insight. The purpose of our new quarterly is to help guide new and experienced users of finance through the vast array of financial products and financing techniques that are now available in the market place.

Whilst traditional bank lending remains an essential source of core funding, many finance directors and treasurers are now contemplating the significant range of alternative financing products that are available to supplement, enhance or replace traditional financing services.

The financial crisis and post crisis regulatory reforms have left most banks more capital constrained and with less appetite for higher risk or more complex products because of higher regulatory capital requirements. In a number of instances this has limited the efficiency of markets to move capital flows between those in need of capital and those best placed to provide and manage capital markets risk. As the global economic recovery takes hold this inevitably opens the door to a wide range of alternative products and non-bank funding sources that are in a better position to provide much needed capital resources. Areas that are critical to the wider economy such as commercial and residential property finance and business investment and development funding will need significant capital availability over the next few years and are increasingly likely to turn to alternative funding services. Already we have noted a significant increase in funding from alternative credit providers such as insurance companies and credit funds. The return of CLOs to the financial markets in 2013/2014 will further provide additional liquidity and open access to alternative funds products.

Our aim is to help guide corporates, funders and banks through some of the practical issues they face. In the more heavily regulated and complex financial world in which we operate our hope is that a guide based on a practical and deep understanding of financial products across the 78 offices from which we operate will help users in the further development of more liquid, safer and efficient global financial markets.
