As a private bank managed by former investment bankers, REYL & Cie is closely associated with entrepreneurship and corporate advisory. REYL & Cie is fully aware that the needs of its entrepreneurial clients go far beyond the scope of traditional Wealth Management services.

REYL & Cie’s Corporate Advisory & Structuring (“CAS”) team is composed of seasoned investment banking professionals. Being fully integrated within REYL Group, they work across sectors and jurisdictions at the intersection of disciplines to offer objective corporate finance and institutional solutions to business owners focusing on their tool of value creation – their company.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Being independent and without conflicts, REYL & Cie acts for clients indifferently on the buy-side or on the sell-side. The CAS team operates at the heart of the auction process, prepares the sell-side documentation, gives impartial and objective advice about the comparable merits of received bids, and participates in negotiations. It also advises prospective buyers in identifying potential targets, leads the financial due diligence exercise, assists in negotiations and secures acquisition financing.
REYL & Cie provides innovative solutions for the restructuring of existing debt and equity capital in the context of out-of-court transactions. The CAS team designs and implements defensive strategies aiming at keeping businesses shielded from aggressive creditors while going through a financial and industrial restructuring.
REYL & Cie advises entrepreneurs on cost-efficient fund raising through private debt issuance. The CAS team structures, arranges and leads private placements of loans and bond issues, relying on its wide distribution network of credit-oriented alternative asset managers, direct-lending funds and family offices.
REYL & Cie executes structured finance transactions, including securitisations, and advises its clients on alternatives to plain vanilla funding options. The CAS team leverages on its long standing experience, market access and execution expertise as well as its placement capabilities with a wide variety of investors including institutional real money accounts. Securitisation transactions include commodity offtakes, infrastructure or other long dated well-rated cash flows, recharacterised or re-packaged as appropriate.
Private Equity / Special Situations
REYL & Cie identifies growth-oriented businesses with high quality management teams and assists them in their capital raising efforts. The CAS team advises companies in growing their core activities, initiating new businesses and making targeted acquisitions to support their long-term strategy.
