Corporate Advisory & Structured Finance

Realizing the increasingly diverse needs of our customers for advisory and structured finance transactions, a specialized department focusing on Investment Banking services has been established at Meezan Bank. The department is geared towards providing comprehensive and innovative financial solutions through a diverse product offering, providing a broad array of financing solutions to the bank’s clients. The focus is on nurturing and developing long-term relationships with clients by understanding their unique financing requirements and providing Shariah-compliant financing solutions.


In a short span of time, the Investment Banking department has been able to develop core expertise in arranging syndicated, structured and Project finance and providing advice on mergers and acquisitions, buy-side / sell-side advisory, financial restructuring, structured equity and venture capital investments.

Syndications & Structured Finance


Structured finance involves highly complex financial transactions. It is useful in cases where standard financing products do not meet a company’s requirements. MBL’s Investment Banking department offers uniquely structured transactions for its customers based on various modes of Islamic finance including Ijarah, Diminishing Musharakah and Istisna.


Project Financing


Project financing involves financing of long-term infrastructure and industrial projects. These are non-recourse or limited recourse financings where project debt and equity used to finance the project are paid back from the cash flows generated by the project. Meezan Bank’s Investment Banking department has a proven track record of successfully executing numerous Project Finance transactions despite its recent entry in the financial market. Meezan also has the honour of being the pioneer in successfully executing the first ever project financing transaction in the Islamic banking sector of the country. 


Advisory Services


The Investment Banking department at Meezan Bank has recently set up a team to handle its Corporate Advisory business. The department is currently strengthening its existing expertise of providing Advisory Services by employing professionals to help the bank’ customers decide the best financial approach for their businesses.



Meezan Bank as torch-bearer of Islamic Banking in Pakistan has been making significant contributions in the Investment Banking industry by playing leading roles in business transactions.
