Société Générale’s investment banking division has created what it calls an issuer-focused division across the equity-debt continuum. Called capital raising and financing (CAF), it includes such capital markets activities as equity and debt capital markets, strategic acquisition finance, leveraged finance, media telecom finance, as well as all structured finance (export, infrastructure & asset-backed, natural resources and real estate), hedging (interest rate and FX derivatives) and syndication.
