The new Syndicated Lending Sixth Edition is the only book of its kind to combine a detailed practical overview of both the financial and legal aspects of Syndicated Lending - benefitting from contributions by both a leading Syndicated Lending Bank (Royal Bank of Scotland) and law firm (Clifford Chance).

Mark Campbell is the Global Head of the Finance Practice of international law firm Clifford Chance. He has specialised in international and domestic banking and financial work. He has acted for a wide variety of arrangers of syndicated financing transactions of all types and has advised the Loan Market Association on its standard documentation since its inception.

What are the key benefits of this book?

Everything you need to know about syndicated lending is in one place. The book is a practical guide to the subject. Armed with the book the reader would have all the information needed to be able to bid for and win a mandate, price the deal, document it and close syndication.

It covers the legal and economic issues comprehensively. All the contributors are leading practitioners in today's markets including lawyers, bankers from every relevant banking discipline (origination, syndicate, sales, transaction management, agency), IT providers, information platform professionals.

This new edition includes the following:

  • Extensive statistical information on the history of the market and current market trends
  • Case studies on two example transactions (a corporate backstop facility and an acquisition finance facility) involving extensive analysis of tactics for bidding for mandates and of all-in costs of transactions
  • Sample term sheets for both transactions with guidance notes plus a sample facility agreement for one of the transactions (also with guidance notes)
  • Case study for secondary loan trading with pricing analysis and legal documentation
  • A full glossary of market terms
  • Supplements by leading market practitioners, borrowers, service providers and trade associations (including the LMA and LSTA)
