Aims and Objectives

The syndication of loan facilities, whether at the outset or at a later stage, has become increasingly important in recent years as a result of the even larger loans required by borrowers and the lending constraints imposed on banks by regulations concerning capital adequacy and liquidity.

An understanding of the drafting difficulties and problem areas in syndicated loan documentation is highly desirable for bankers, their in-house legal staff and external advisers. As well as helping them to avoid the major pitfalls when drafting the loan offer and information memorandum, it also enables them to work more effectively with outside lawyers in the preparation of the subsequent loan documents.

Programme Objectives:

  • The basic principles of loan syndication and its benefits
  • How to choose the appropriate method of syndication
  • The essential elements and the problem areas in drafting the documents usually produced by the bank
  • How to ensure that future participants receive the rights they expect
  • The skills required to vet documents produced by external legal advisers
  • How to avoid errors in documentation which could increase an institution's liability for damages
  • The different techniques for indirect participation, including the most recent innovations on credit and their features
  • How to recognise the dangers and problem areas for indirect participation
  • The techniques for dealing with the particular problems of secured loans
