Independent and reliable trustee services

The debt financing and capital markets sectors are becoming increasingly complex to navigate and you need to be able to move quickly when executing new deals. As transactions are becoming ever more sophisticated, you’ll need a partner who’s experienced in complex deal structures, is up to date on all global and local legal and regulatory requirements and is used to operating internationally.

From structuring through to the closing of a deal transaction, you need to remain compliant with all regulatory requirements and adhere to strict accounting and tax compliance demands. Working with a team who are experienced in all asset classes across debt capital markets, asset finance, structured finance and ABS transactions will add real value to the timely and efficient execution of your deal activity.

We’re an independent trustee who is active both in the public sphere and on niche private deals involving alternative finance providers. We act in a number of trustee roles including data, note, security and noteholder representative and have significant experience in dealing with all types of asset-backed transactions (ABS/CMBS/RMBS), collateralised loan obligations, project finance and aviation finance transactions.

Our dedicated team of over 4,000 professionals come from a wide range of financial services backgrounds including banks, independent corporate trustees and law firms. As a trustee in securitisation transactions, we play a crucial role in helping to protect your investors’ interests by monitoring the compliance and governance around the securitisation of the trust.​ Our dynamic and flexible approach allows us to be a trustee who’s responsive and pragmatic when executing capital markets transactions. We’re truly independent, non-conflicted and operate with the highest degree of transparency and integrity. We also hold a wholesale Australian Financial Services License (AFSL), providing the necessary authorisations where we’re also providing trustee or other services in relation to an onshore (Australian) vehicle or feeder.

  • Security trustee / security agent
  • Note/bond trustee
  • Share trustee
  • Collateral agent
  • Noteholder representative
  • Voting trustee
  • Successor trustee
  • Data trustee/data agent

US Trustee on New York governed bonds

Our UK team acts as trustee on any New York law governed indentures that aren’t subject to the Trust Indenture Act 1939 (TIA), provided we:

  • are subject to the jurisdiction of any US federal or state court in the State and City of New York
  • comply with the US PATRIOT Act to obtain information on each client

We provide this service on any non-TIA bonds, most likely being High Yield Bonds as the most common and our UK team can act as a trustee on all types of private and public loans provided that the requirements set out by the borrower and lender(s) allow it. The advantage of using us as a London-based trustee is that we’re experienced in taking security roles on a wide range of assets, across our global network.

AFSL Wholesale Trustee Services

In Australia, our team’s able to provide trust formation, ongoing trustee services and incidental custody services. The team has a wealth of experience in structuring trusts, including managed investment trusts (MIT’s), and our approach means that we can act fast when executing new deals and responding to transaction events.
