Structured and Financing Markets

Bringing together our capabilities across structured solutions and investment strategies.

Our Structured and Financing Markets business brings together our capabilities across structured solutions and investment strategies to help institutional clients access the markets efficiently, hedge their portfolios and gain cross-asset exposure.

Cross-Asset Structured Solutions

We provide cross-asset structured solutions through our global EFS Solutions platform. The team offers derivatives, structured products and strategic investments for both sides of the balance sheet for clients worldwide.

We create non-linear derivatives for clients, including structured notes and financial tools for potential yield enhancement and cash flow hedging. In addition, our EFS Solutions team consults with clients to address their need for investment returns and capital protection through the use of a range of innovative financial structures. These include our Quantitative Investment Strategies suite, risk premia investing and long term savings products which have been developed alongside world renowned economists and thought leaders. We also provide structured financing, and work closely with clients to help them optimise their collateral, capital and leverage.

Municipal Finance

We have a long history of industry expertise and are a leader in Municipal Finance. With regional teams based across the United States and dedicated sector experts, we can support municipal issuers and investors at every step. Our senior professionals average over 20 years of experience in the municipal markets, giving us the knowledge and expertise to meet the demands of even the most sophisticated issuers.

We provide financing and restructuring advice to states and municipalities, as well as a range of non-profit institutions across education, healthcare and more. Investors turn to us as their go-to resource for investment opportunities, research, and sales and trading of cash and derivative municipal securities. By building long-term partnerships across the issuer and investor base, we’re able to help minimize borrowing costs, enhance investment returns, and help clients to more effectively manage their assets and liabilities – helping everyone plan for the future.

  • Century Bonds – bonds with maturities of 100 years – used to be limited almost entirely in the municipal space to highly-rated colleges and universities. But today, with interest rates holding at near-historic lows, Century Bonds have caught the eye of a broad range of borrowers including health care, public utility and transportation issuers. Barclays is the industry leader in Century Bond underwriting and has managed 15 of the 20 largest issues with a total par amount of more than $6 billion.

    See the video below for more information on how our clients have benefited from Barclays’ unique approach to client coverage in this space. 

Securitised Products

From consumer loans and commercial mortgages to film libraries and whole business asset portfolios, we’ve long been a leader in the securitisation market. Our teams help clients to structure and underwrite new transactions, and sell and trade securities in the secondary markets. We provide our clients with proprietary research and other market intelligence to deliver them seamless execution of securitisation transactions.
