We provide a specialist service, spanning multiple jurisdictions, supported by experienced people and industry-leading loan administration systems.

Our experience within debt funds include the following strategies:

Funds may include senior loans, including bank debt such as VFNs and RCFs, direct lending and sponsorless debt, small-cap mezzanine and corporate loans. We also perform value added services to managers such as borrower KYC on direct loans.

Capital Markets Services
SANNE provides a complete suite of capital markets services to a range of onshore and offshore SPVs for many of the world’s major banks and global financial institutions. Our premium service levels have allowed us to grow our market share significantly over a sustained period. Our team is led by directors who are experts in capital markets transactions and structures, including securitisation programmes, repackaging deals and structured finance deals. SANNE is one of the few service providers that is able to act on both regulated and unregulated capital markets platforms.
In recent times, as asset managers replicate traditional banking activity within capital markets, we have seen the benefit of being well-integrated across the fund administration and capital markets teams, enabling a seamless service across both markets. SANNE’s capital markets capability was further strengthened by our acquisition of a leading bank’s capital markets business in the Channel Islands and Dublin during 2013. Our capital markets experience includes:
- Asset financing (aircraft, cars, trains, shipping)
- ABS, CMBS, RMBS
- CDOs, CLOs and derivatives thereof
- Covered bonds
- Commercial paper programmes
- Escrow agent
- Life settlements
- MTN programmes
