Corporate Finance

Our Corporate Finance team offers banking and lending services for large multi-national groups and mid-cap corporates.

Over the past 30 years, CIC’s London Corporate team has developed an in-depth knowledge of the UK and European markets across all key industry sectors from long-standing relationships with its clients. Located in the City of London, we provide a range of lending products directly in the UK, but also offer a wide spectrum of banking services through the global network of Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale.

Services provided by our Head Office teams include DCM, hedging and derivative solutions and fixed income activities while we also offer local banking, cash management, leasing and factoring facilities via our European branch network. Our international branch operations in New York, Singapore and Hong Kong can provide local support to our clients with a presence in these regions, enabling us to support our clients globally.
