Debt Capital Markets

Debt Capital Markets - China

Our lawyers are experts in debt capital markets

We advise issuers and underwriters on the full spectrum of debt capital market transactions, including standalone bonds and debt programmes, equity-linked instruments, private placements and warrants.

We have been involved in many of the most innovative debt capital market products in China. For example, we advise on complex hybrid products, asset-backed security (ABS) products and other products that are new to China.

Local and international expertise

In China and internationally we are closely involved in the internationalisation of the RMB. And our standing in the market is reflected by our top-tier position in the major legal directories as well as in Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters and other independent market surveys and awards. 

Our China team works closely with the Capital Markets teams in Hong Kong, Sydney and London on international debt and convertible debt products. We advise on the US aspects of all debt capital market transactions, including SEC-registered offerings, Rule 144A and Regulation S offerings.

We regularly advise issuers and underwriters in China on:

  • Bond issues
  • Convertibles
  • Asset-backed securities
  • Securitisation
  • RMB offshore products.

We have a full team specialising in this area.
