Syndicated loan financing transactions


“Syndicated lending in Europe, the Middle East and Africa totalled US$144bn in the first three months of 2020, the lowest volume recorded for any quarter for a decade, as many borrowers are left reeling from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.” -

This course will explore an important way in which large companies raise vast amounts of money through borrowing from different banks (i.e. a syndicate) as part of the same transaction. As global markets recover from the pandemic there is likely to be an uptick in these types of financing transactions.

Join us for an four-hour course, held over two days.
