TAG-Capital performs a comprehensive study to provide institutions with a baseline for assessing the impact of borrowing on the financial position of the institution. Our team of experts analyses the institution’s financial framework, its current and future capital financing needs, and provides a preliminary exploratory analysis of various financing alternatives.

Before developing a financing plan, our team will meet with the institution’s management, financial staff, and board of trustees in order to set up a comprehensive plan which will help the institution fulfill its strategic objectives. This will facilitate informed decision making relative to future capital financing needs, capital campaign requirements, and potential revenue increases.

TAG-Capital reviews alternatives and identifies the most beneficial course of action. We help structure bond issue to be cost-effective and attractive to buyers and assist the institution in the identification and selection of the various parties involved in the debt issuance process, which may include underwriters, marketing agents, bond/Sukuk insurance companies, bond counsel, and trustees.

We are responsible for the following tasks:

  • Coordinating financing structures with the underwriter according to the specific needs of the institution.
  • Negotiating overall upfront costs, ongoing costs, and interest rate costs.
  • Assisting the institution in preparation of rating agency presentations.
  • Assisting in negotiation of fees, terms and conditions of credit enhancements provided by bond insurance companies and/or letter-of-credit banks.
  • Reviewing and assessing issuance of cost appropriation including the underwriter’s discount, remarketing fees, counsel fees, and trustee fees.
  • Evaluation of interest rate(s) proposed by the underwriter according to the current market.
  • Compilation of the official statement appendix with financial and summary information on the institution as required for disclosure purposes by the rating agencies, letter-ofcredit bank or insurance companies.
