Source: City University of London (Cass)
This paper empirically explore the influence of loan characteristics, banking and financial structure, and regulatory and institutional factors on the design of bank loan syndicates in emerging market economies. The results show that the structure of syndicates is adapted to enhance monitoring of the borrower and to increase the efficiency of re-contracting process in case of borrower's distress. Main syndication motives, such as loans portfolio diversification, regulatory pressure and management costs reduction, influence syndicate design in emerging markets economies.
