The founding partners at Newstate have unrivalled experience acting as trusted advisors in many of the most high profile and precedent setting sovereign financial transactions of recent times. The strength of the team’s many long-term client relationships is a testament to the high quality of advice provided.

Professionals at Newstate have acted as financial advisors to more than 30 governments across all geographic regions of the world over the past three decades. Advice has been provided on issues related to all aspects of debt management, including funding strategies (bond issues, commercial bank loans, official bilateral and multilateral); credit ratings and investor relations; liability management (exchange offers, buy-backs, debt swaps, hedging strategies); and infrastructure financing. We have a market-leading experience in advising sovereigns at times of financial distress and our professionals have been retained by interested parties on more than half of all sovereign external bond restructurings implemented in modern times.

The firm, which has its roots in the dedicated sovereign advisory team originally formed within S. G. Warburg & Co Ltd in the 1970s, has a long established track record of the highest degree of professionalism and integrity. Newstate, wholly owned by its partners, is able to provide superior advice free of the conflicts of interest traditionally associated with large investment banks.
