A proven and rigorous Debt Advisory approach

  •  Initial “Go” / “No Go” review of the current funding proposal based on historic, current and forecast financial performance.
  • Fine tune or fundamental redesign of the current funding structure to increase marketability of the proposal while ensuring a competitive cost of borrowing.
  • Thorough scenario analysis to understand the organisation’s ability to support the required funding obligations.
  • Advice on the relative merit and fit of funding sources including existing and/or alternative lenders locally and overseas.
  • Commercial review of all documentation and negotiation to completion.
  • Post funding support to highlight any opportunities to improve the current facility terms. 

KPMG's Debt Advisory role  

The options. 


  • Lead Adviser: here we are at the forefront of advising on and negotiating all aspects of the assignment, including liaising directly with funding providers, legal advisers and any other third parties as required.
  • Expert Mentor: sometimes it is more effective to have our expertise and guidance in the background, so that existing, sensitive relationships can be managed optimally.


In all circumstances, we recommend which role will deliver the best outcome at the commencement of the assignment.
