Serving the public sector, globally

Our Government Finance team provides a broad range of financing and advisory services to public sector clients both in Canada and internationally. In Canada, these clients comprise the Federal Government along with federal Crown corporations and asset managers, Provinces, Provincially-owned Crown corporations and pension funds, Territories and Municipalities. Internationally the team’s focus is on supranationals, sovereigns and agencies in the US, Europe and Asia.

With offices in Toronto, Montreal, New York and London, the team’s financing services are primarily concentrated on the origination of Canadian and US Dollar debt securities ranging from traditional, large, global public offerings to more tailored private placements. The team works closely with our partners in Global Markets to provide clients with comprehensive expertise and advice on borrowing strategy and investor relations to more tactical, transaction-specific decisions relating to investor timing, pricing, size, structure and tenure of individual debt issues.

Our Government Finance team leverages our industry expertise across CIBC’s Global Investment Banking group to provide clients strategic and execution advisory services relating to infrastructure development and financing, asset sales, monetizations and divestitures.
