Bond issuance – Irish and UK domestic bonds
Avenir maintains electronically administered registers of bondholders for bonds settling in the CREST system in the Ireland, the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands, and also for Irish issuers settling into the Euroclear Bank CSD after March 2021. Avenir also offers certificated holdings and physical bond certificates. The Avenir Register offers online access to view and print certificates.
Our registry service is available to issuers regardless of jurisdiction of incorporation, size of bond issue or the listing venue, subject to the bond being a UK or Irish security. In addition to the CSD registration process and Euroclear requirements, specific legal structures also need to be adhered to and again we assist with this.
We work with companies regardless of where they are in their lifecycle, from IPOs to mature businesses and also offer a GB and IE ISIN and LEI application service.
Our registry service is available to issuers regardless of jurisdiction of incorporation.
This streamlines the entire process, is critically important when working with directors who are spread over a wide geography and in turn saves clients significant amounts of time and money. We work with all exchanges that require or accept settlement in the CREST system until the mandated changeover.
Throughout the process we collaborate closely with corporate advisers, lawyers and others who are advising the issuer.
Once live on our register, directors can grant access to shareholders, advisers and company directors to view their holdings. Our corporate actions service facilitates dividend distributions should your securities offer coupon payments.
