Over the last decade or so, the debt market has changed considerably as the number of specialist funds has burgeoned, most with a specific market segment in mind.   When talking with the more traditional lenders, it is important to sound out the most appropriate team to ensure you get the initial approach correct to maximise your chances of success.

The key areas of third-party debt where we provide advice are:

  • Asset-Backed Lending (ABL)
  • Senior debt
  • Junior debt
  • Mezzanine debt
  • Unitranche
  • High Yield loans, off-balance sheet Special Purpose Vehicles (“SPV”)


We were delighted with the debt advisory support we received from Chris Roberts at Polestar. We were looking for flexible banking facilities to support the growth of PeopleValue and Chris lead the identification of a number of appropriate banking partners and supported us in tailoring the facilities. Polestar supported with the modelling which was instrumental in being able to set the appropriate covenants and the negotiation of the banking aspects in the legal documentation. We are very grateful to Polestar and could not have arranged the facilities in the time required without their support.
