Unlocking value from your capital structure
The most successful companies strike a balance between risk and return as it relates to capital structure planning and maintenance. Meeting complex Accounting Standards and compliance / valuation requirements for financial instruments is a cost of entry, but implementing best practices to mitigate risk, manage obligations, and measure benefit can take your capital structure to the next level.
We deliver value and peace of mind
At Grant Thornton, the Complex Financial Instrument Pricing team (CFIP) can address your financial instrument valuation and risk management requirements. We can assist with:

- Determination of synthetic credit rating and risk-adjusted rates (including the incremental borrowing rate under IFRS 16),
- Hedge effectiveness assessments,
