Private Placement is a key financing tool to accompany our Infrastructure clients as well as SMEs. These markets represent a growing financing tool to address financing needs while limiting the recourse to the bank’s balance sheet.

Crédit Agricole CIB has been very active in the Private Placement markets recently having arranged EUR 8bn over c. 25 transactions (of which 15 Euro PP, 6 US Private Placement and 2 Schuldscheindarlehen) with Belgian, Finnish, French, German, Italian, and UK issuers.

Acting as sole arranger for 10 transactions including 5 inaugurals, demonstrates our execution capabilities. This success rewards the bank’s commitment in supporting SME and Infrastructure financing across markets.

Toby Croasdell“As a cornerstone of our Capital Markets offering, the Global Private Placement business is a key tool for the broad spectrum of Crédit Agricole CIB’s clients. Our strong origination, innovation and truly Global distribution, ensure we can help our clients achieve the best results in each of the global private markets. It’s this client focused, format agnostic approach that ensures we remain well placed to provide unbiased advice and execution, resulting in an ever growing universe of clients working with us in these markets. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients for entrusting us with their business and look forward to more success together in the private markets during 2022 and beyond.”
