Your job

The Restructuring team is part of FR&R ‘Expertise’. Our goal is to improve the risk profile of the client while maintaining the relationship and ultimately return a performing client to the regular commercial teams of our bank.

As a senior restructurer you analyse the current situation, determine the strategy & action plan for a client and present your view to the credit committees. You conduct negotiations with all involved internal & external stakeholders and implement the deal. Thereby you work closely with your internal deal team and external professional advisors. 

Financial restructuring entails a wide range of possible outcomes and therefore requires in depth knowledge of amongst other: credit structuring, (private) equity and/or M&A and legal. This all requires strong negotiation skills, and a fair level of project/process management skills.

3. Specialised Finance: team of (equity) specialists, focusing on alternative (debt to equity) instruments in restructurings in order to minimalize credit losses for ABN AMRO and to create value for all stakeholders involved and eventually also benefit from potential upside after implementation of a ‘debt to equity’ swap or distressed M&A. 

Our FR&R department has a client base of appr ~200 clients and 55 FTE, numbers are very much dependent on the economic cycle. The purpose of FR&R is to guide clients through rough times towards a sustainable future. We focus mainly on distressed clients with an exposure of > EUR 5m, being clients from (mainly) Corporate Banking, Wealth Management (International), Asset Based Finance (international) and Leveraged Finance.
