Fixed income and treasury specialists

Laminar Capital is a fixed income market specialist. We play a vital role in Australia’s capital markets. We bring market participants – issuers and investors – together to help move funding between both sides of the transaction. Connecting market participants is a highly specialised skill. It takes decades of experience across different cycles and diverse sectors to truly understand market conditions and opportunities.

Our consistent service delivery and reputation has earned us the opportunity to partner with over 650 clients such as government organisations, superannuation funds, local councils, ADIs, not-for-profits, wealth managers and sophisticated investors.​

For ADIs we play a critical role in helping them fund their balance sheets by distributing wholesale term deposits, arranging term debt funding and then trading that debt in the secondary market. In essence, we help enable the market to operate.
