About us

A&F S.r.l. S.t.p. (Advi­so­ry and Finance) was incor­po­rat­ed in 2009 and oper­ates from Milan and Lon­don offices. We are an inde­pen­dent com­pa­ny pro­vid­ing both cor­po­rate finance advice and finance through four busi­ness lines:

Cor­po­rate Finance Advi­so­ry
Finan­cial Assets Secu­ri­ti­sa­tion
Man­aged Invest­ment Plat­form
Trans­ac­tion Man­age­ment Ser­vices

A&F was con­ceived dur­ing the finan­cial mael­strom of 2007/2008 specif­i­cal­ly to guide and sup­port our clients in eco­nom­ic, mar­ket and reg­u­la­to­ry con­di­tions of unprece­dent­ed dif­fi­cul­ty. Our man­age­ment and trans­ac­tion lead­ers each have over 25 years of struc­tured finance expe­ri­ence, gained in senior posi­tions at com­mer­cial and invest­ment banks, rat­ing agen­cies, Inter­na­tion­al Finan­cial Insti­tu­tions and legal and accoun­tan­cy prac­tices.

We are intense­ly proud of our track record. To date we have suc­cess­ful­ly closed struc­tured finance trans­ac­tions in a prin­ci­pal amount of over Euro 10 bil­lion.

We believe that our track record in our four busi­ness lines gives clear­est insight into the activ­i­ty and ethos of A&F:

  • We are a one stop shop oper­at­ing over the full debt rais­ing con­tin­u­um
  • We struc­ture senior and sub­or­di­nat­ed debt issuance, rat­ing and doc­u­men­ta­tion nego­ti­a­tion
  • We invest as prin­ci­pals in the equi­ty and mez­za­nine tranch­es of trans­ac­tions we design
  • We pro­vide com­plete post clos­ing ancil­lary ser­vices

And this means that for our clients:

  • At A&F we pro­vide inde­pen­dent, informed, reli­able and effec­tive advice
  • At A&F we pro­vide con­ti­nu­ity and com­mit­ment from incep­tion to final matu­ri­ty
  • At A&F we back our own judg­ment with our own mon­ey
  • In A&F they have an utter­ly trust­wor­thy advis­er with finan­cial mus­cle to deliv­er tan­gi­ble results
  • At A&F we do what we have said we will do
