Understanding the key drivers and depth of lending market in the APAC region, to explore syndication strategies in a competitive environment

DEBT SYNDICATION ASIA SUMMIT 2018

Global syndicated loans totalled US$4.6 trillion from 9,887 transactions during full year 2017, a 12% increase in proceeds and a 3% increase in number of completed loans compared to the previous year. Syndicated lending in Asia reached approximately US$403 billion from 1,243 deals in 2017 and refinancing activities accounted for 30.6% of issuance in the region. Increased M&A activity has helped drive the volume of syndicated loans in the region and as such activities rises in Southeast Asia, more companies are using syndicated loans for funding. Foreign players along with Singaporean and Malaysian banks have helped contribute to the increase in syndicated loan activities over the last couple of years.

The Debt Syndication Asia Summit 2018 will focus on developing strategies for thriving in an ever-challenging market, emerging structures in financing channels and how banks and institutional investors are redefining the market with various financing solutions and business model revisions and understand what drives the scale and depth of loan market.
