CFAS has been providing financial advisory services to Governments and Public Sector clients world-wide since 1982.
It incorporates part of the Government Advisory Division of Warburgs (subsequently UBS Warburg). In 1995, the business and activities were separated from UBS Warburg and have operated independently since then.
CFAS has close links with ADN Capital Ventures, Inc. of California (www.adncv.com), with whom we have collaborated on the execution of several large infrastructure advisory assignments around the world.
Over the years from its inception, CFAS has provided financial advisory services for sovereign debt rescheduling, state sector restructuring, privatisations and financing to many Governments and state entities in emerging markets, including in Anguilla, Antigua, Aruba, Curacao, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname, The Dominican Republic, Trinidad & Tobago, The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank in St. Kitts and the Commonwealth Secretariat. CFAS have also been retained as financial advisors by clients in Central America, Europe, the Middle East and beyond; examples of CFAS work are shown in the drop down menus of its project experience.
The range of mandates undertaken by the group has covered a broad spectrum including complex structured financings, PPP projects, Award- winning trade finance transactions and advising central banks and public sector entities. For instance, jointly with UBS, CFAS acted as financial advisers to the Government of Jamaica for the launch of Highway 2000, the largest single infrastructure development in the English-speaking Caribbean and on the successful privatisation of Sangster International Airport at Montego Bay.
