Facility Agency Services

Flexible, efficient support

In an increasingly complex regulatory environment, lenders are looking to independent facility agents to provide support on syndicated loan transactions.

What is a Facility Agent?

A facility agent acts as a primary point of contact between the transaction parties to a syndicated loan - a critical role in ensuring the success of a transaction.

The syndicate may be a combination of various types of loans, each with different repayment terms that are agreed upon between the lenders and the borrower prior to the signing of loan documentation.

In addition we can provide support as:

  • Security Agent

  • Mezzanine Agent

  • Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) Agent

  • Payment-In-Kind (PIK) Agent


Our services include:

  • Primary contact between borrowers, lenders and other transaction parties

  • Calculation and allocation of principal and interest

  • Creation and maintenance of loan records and register of lenders

  • Coordination of amendments, consents and waivers

  • Ensuring ongoing compliance with the terms of the transaction documentation

  • Monitoring overall available commitment for the facility and per lender

  • Ensuring ongoing compliance with the terms of the transaction documentation

As facility agent we owe a contractual obligation to both the borrower and the lenders. However, we have no fiduciary duty and are not required to advise the borrower or the lenders. Our responsibility primarily pertains to transaction management and administration.
