Telecoms, Media and Technology

Telecommunications, Media and Technology

The telecoms, media and technology industry is a high-growth sector and important driver of economic growth.

Greater connectivity, changing consumption patterns and increasing reliance on eco-systems are all changing the sector quickly. The future market will be shaped by regulatory change, M&A activity, and high levels of spending on capital assets and R&D. Our teams are well positioned to help our clients to navigate these challenges.

We use our industry expertise to support clients by providing solutions for risk management, financing, working capital and liquidity. We help to facilitate growth and manage sector-specific risks. Our teams are based in London and New York, and we’re supported by offices in Europe and Singapore. We provide clients with a whole range of services, from funding and liquidity strategies, through to hedging strategies and risk management.

Telecommunications

We are committed to supporting the telecommunications sector. Our clients’ infrastructure and services are essential to the success of economies around the world.

To meet the challenges posed by the current market, our clients are focusing more and more on capital structure, working capital, risk and liquidity. We are experts at implementing financial solutions for our clients. We help our clients to maintain capital efficiency, and we make sure that they are insulated from the most significant financial risks.

Media

The media sector is growing as never before. As technology and channels develop, consumers enjoy increasingly rich and novel experiences. Media owners need to consider the challenge posed by this proliferation of channels. This may demand significant shifts to their business models. Our expert team helps media clients to achieve their business goals by providing solutions to optimise their balance sheets, liquidity, and risk profiles.

Technology

Technology is a rapidly changing and often volatile sector. Our clients face a number of competing priorities, including the need to invest in R&D, capital assets and intellectual property. At the same time, our clients need to closely manage liquidity and ensure cash is available to take advantage of opportunities in the market.

Our relationship-led approach means we take the time to understand our clients’ issues. We work closely with our product experts to deliver solutions that add value throughout the economic cycle.
