The Capital Markets Division comprises origination, structuring and execution of market-oriented debt and equity instruments, providing services to corporates, financial institutions, public companies and state-related entities.
In the debt capital markets area (DCM), the Bank is engaged in structuring debt instruments, namely domestic debt issues and cross-border issues, especially related to China and other emerging markets. The Bank is also a relevant player in the green / social and sustainable debt issuance and in short term financing alternatives.
The equity capital markets area (ECM) comprises privatisations, initial public offerings (IPOs), capital increases, takeover offers and delistings as well as equity-linked instruments, such as convertible bonds for corporate clients.
The Capital Markets Division also supports other Haitong Group entities in their domestic transactions, whenever there is an international angle both in terms of their client’s activities, as well as sectors exposed to global market trends.
The DCM business strategy is underpinned by 3 drivers: (i) historical franchise (domestic debt issuance in Portugal, Spain, Poland, Brazil and Macau), leveraging on its local structuring, distribution and underwriting capabilities; (ii) China-related business, leveraging on Haitong Group-wide origination and distribution capabilities and (iii) cross-border.
