THE RIVERSTONE ADVANTAGE
Leading Advisory Team
Riverstone is Bangladesh’s leading financial advisory firm, with an extensive network of international partners providing additional heft. The Riverstone deal team brings together bankers with more than 50 years of combined experience in Bangladesh who have originated and executed more than USD 2 Billion of transactions in different currencies for borrowers in addition to advising on two of the largest advisory mandates in Bangladesh history.
In-depth Industry Experience
The deal team has extensive expertise in Bangladesh’s power & energy, textile, iron & steel, building materials, food & beverage, FMCG, pharmaceuticals & chemicals, transport & communication, and telecom & media industries. Individual team members have helped raise more than USD 1.5 Billion for power and energy projects in recent years. We have the in-depth understanding of the local regulatory environment and international practices – a unique advantage over advisors without Bangladesh experience. Deal team members have also led some of the largest Bangladeshi deals in steel & building materials, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals & chemicals, textiles and telecoms with extensive participation by local & offshore banks and NBFI’s.
Multi Product Solution
Riverstone offers a wide range of domestic and cross-border financing solutions in both debt and equity. Our ability to source cross-border debt from various Development Finance Institutions (DFI), Multi-Lateral Agencies (MLA), Export Credit Agencies (ECA) and leading international banks in cross-border syndicates sets us apart from most local banks. For on-shore financing, we also bring together our large number of partner banks and financial institutions into lending syndicates.
We also offer equity solutions either by accessing public markets through IPO’s, follow-on’s or private capital as appropriate.
We have developed an extensive local network through decades of experience in Bangladesh. Riverstone is connected to all major ECA’s, MLA’s and DFI’s as well as local banks & financial institutions. We have longstanding relationships with and access to leading corporates across multiple industries. Market intelligence through these networks built up over the years gives Riverstone the unique ability to originate and screen risk-adjusted deals that suit investors’ appetites.
