Structured Finance.

Mayne Wetherell’s domestic and cross-border structured finance and securitisation expertise is widely regarded as being the best in the New Zealand market.

This has seen us act for either issuers or financial institutions on the establishment of nearly all of the significant securitisation structures in New Zealand. In addition to issuers and originators, we act for arrangers, warehouse / mezzanine lenders and trustees.

As part of that expertise, we are increasingly using securitisation structures or techniques as a means of acquisition financing, complementing our expertise in financial services M&A transactions.
