Product Name Syndicated Loan
Link to Product Website
Provider Name CABEI (Central American Bank for Economic Integration)
Product Definition CABEI´s Syndicated Loans allow funds provided by a group of banks to be channeled through a single credit facility. In this type of loan, the structuring bank (“Lead Arranger”) is responsible for designing the overall structure of the financing and achieves the integration of other participating banks. An agent bank is responsible for coordinating the monitoring of credit.

The syndicated loan has the main advantage of diversifying the source of funds for a credit facility, allowing participating banks to commit funds towards a desired asset, without having to concentrate exposure to the same in the form of a large monetary commitment.   Additionally, through the assignment of an Agent Bank the borrower enjoys greater agility and flexibility in the negotiation and operation of the credit facility, since it only deals with one bank that represents the syndicate.
