L&EIP was established with the primary objective being the deployment of institutional capital to non investment grade companies, infrastructure, projects and emerging markets . It provides a bridging role by structuring projects with risk mitigation and credit risk creation as the goal.

Following the financial crisis of 2007, project and commercial risk factors have been exponentially increased under post-crisis capital adequacy ratios; and are considered to be one of the major factors behind the infrastructure and project funding shortfall which will only be exacerbated by COVID-19.

L&EIP understand that Treasurers and finance chiefs can neither predict nor determine the future environment in which the company operates, and the shift in strategy that might be required.
The capital structure is a key priority and post Covid 19 ways to optimise the balance sheet to combine financial resilience and flexibility whilst minimising costs are an imperative.
Cost of funds, liquidity and capital requirements are leading factors considered by finance chiefs.
Typically finance chiefs will focus on the cost of equity or debt, and may ignore other increasingly important aspects like the risk premium. Incorporating the risk of exposure within the balance sheet, both from internal and external factors, can reduce optimisation and by doing so reduce liquidity and increase cost.
While market shocks may be regional or as we have seen global in their impact, this impact generally differs across markets. Adverse movements can affect business strategy and the potential for growth, ongoing feasibility of investment projects and inter-company borrowing requirements.
L&EIP BSO services target a bullet proof balance sheet through performance enhancing risk transfer, resulting in debt and equity cost optimisation.
