Fortunately some international banks have remained active, while alternative capital providers have been filling the gap, providing a vast array of attractive and customizable solutions.

Key findings:

  • Non-bank capital
  • International capital
  • International bank appetite
  • Non-transparency of capital
  • International advice

Even businesses that have traditionally relied on banks and
Private Equity investors are also turning to alternative (international) capital providers for different layers of finance and risk.”
