About us

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

Corporate Finance Advisory
Financial Assets Securitisation
Specialised 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
