Metals and energy

With a geographic focus on emerging market countries, metals and energy financing covers structured finance transactions in the natural resources sector. All stages of the commodity cycle in metals & mining, oil & gas and related industries are covered including production, transportation, storage, processing and marketing. This enables you to finance working capital requirements, investments, capital expenditure, expansions and acquisitions.


There are two main specifications that generally characterize a metals and energy financing transaction. Firstly, the borrower is either an emerging market commodity producer or service provider, an OECD buyer of commodities, or an OECD supplier of capital equipment, services or inputs. Secondly, the cash flow required for debt service emanates from existing production/service capacity and is typically generated under short to medium term commercial contracts with international and/or local counterparties forming an integral part of the related facility structure.

  • Financing structures are generally based on a flow of commodities with related cash flow generated by existing production and/or service capacity.
  • Global business platform with on the ground presence in Central and Eastern Europe/CIS, Middle East and Africa, the Americas and Asia.
  • Sector expertise in Metals & Mining, Oil & Gas and related industries.
