Syndicated loans are a special form of loans involving two or more first class banks as lenders, each with a share in the loan, one of them acting as the agent. The agent is responsible for coordinating relations between the Borrower and all participating banks, which includes collecting, placing and repaying of the funds to the lenders. Borrowers are able to obtain in an easier and quicker way, a facility of a larger amount through a simpler borrowing process, as the financing terms and conditions are covered by a unified set of documents. Also, borrowers benefit from communicating with only one bank, rather than a number of banks separately.
Syndicated loans are usually granted to first-class clients whose excellent business results make them attractive partners to both foreign and domestic investors.
