Shaw & Co’s debt team welcomes new experienced hire

  • Posted
Shaw & Co is pleased to announce the expansion of its Debt Advisory practice with the appointment of Rick Martignetti.  Rick joins established team members Alexei Garan and Colin Burns increasing the team to three highly experienced banking and debt professionals.

Established in late 2018, Shaw & Co Debt Advisory is a fully independent advisory service for owner managed SMEs. The team is dedicated to helping ambitious entrepreneurs fund their growth using the expanding and increasingly complex debt markets. The Debt Advisory practice is an essential part of Shaw & Co’s mission to help value creators grow, fund and exit.

With a number of cashflow loans already completed, the pipeline is healthy covering growth funding, recapitalisations and sizeable project finance assignments. Rick’s appointment comes at a time when our clients are seeing the real benefit of our independent advice in getting the best solution for them and their businesses.

Rick brings a wealth of experience including lending and foreign exchange solutions for SME and Corporate clients. His experience spans over 20 years at Lloyds, RBS and National Australia Bank, as well as a number of corporate treasuries.

In welcoming Rick, Alexei Garan, Head of Debt Advisory at Shaw & Co, commented: “The days of turning to your bank manager for all your lending needs are long gone. Whilst an ever increasing number of lending options are out there, it is impossible for an SME to know of all traditional and alternative sources of capital, let alone make a successful application for credit.  In this market, our offer of expert, independent advice with a fully contingent fee structure resonates well with SMEs.  We are pleased to reinforce the team’s overall capacity with an appointment of another member highly experienced in credit.  Rick’s expertise in FX allows us to add further value by guiding clients at a time when cross border trade and exchange rate volatility are increasingly in focus post Brexit vote.”
