Merchant Banking

KGI Bank’s Merchant Banking Division offers two main services to corporate clients: financial advisory and structured finance. To strengthen the bank’s competitiveness by differentiating it from other commercial banks, the Merchant Banking Division focuses on the core businesses of financial consultation and loan services, including corporate M&A / spin-off / strategic alliances, industrial cooperation, asset monetization, debt restructuring, equity structure adjustment, private equity fund introduction, acquisition financing and leveraged buy-out (LBO) financing. The division aims to use the aforementioned products to break into the four regional markets of Taiwan, Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. It offers comprehensive financial services to the investment partners and corporate clients of KGI Bank and CDF, in order to meet clients’ diverse needs and enhance the synergies of financial products and services. Ultimately, the aim is to accomplish the full integration of cross-marketing, cross-selling and cross-border operations.


Financial Advisory Business 

As CDF has long been involved in major public infrastructure projects in Taiwan and has been at the forefront of financial consulting for such projects for years, the financial advisory team plays a leading role in the industry, with total solutions that comprise comprehensive financial products and services.

Our Financial Advisory business strategy is tailor-made: we take clients’ assets, debts and shareholders’ equity into consideration and design integrated products which aim to provide target clients with comprehensive one-stop financial service from consultation to execution.  In particular, the financial advisory team is formed by financial experts within KGI Bank as a means of integrating bank resources and helping corporate clients obtain loans via the asset transformation process. It also helps institutional investors engage in equities investment.

The main services include: M&A advisory, debt restructuring, debt financing, share financing, mezzanine financing, financial modeling, financial counseling for public infrastructure projects and introduction of private equity fund.



Structured Finance Business

M&A and LBO financing are the key products of the Merchant Banking Division’s structured finance business. With rich experience in international capital markets, KGI Bank boasts comprehensive financial advisory services and the ability to benefit from CDF’s deep industry knowledge in the Asia-Pacific region and its close-knit private equity fund and investment banking network. As such, the bank targets Asia-Pacific-based clients seeking financing for cross-border M&As, leveraged buyouts and growth capital. In short, the Merchant Banking Division mainly provides the following structured finance services: LBO financing, mezzanine financing, share financing and bridge financing, thus helping clients to create value and enhance operating synergy.
