A significant subset of the alternative asset universe, private equity (PE) is a form of financing where investments are made in unlisted companies (also known as portfolio companies) directly or through a unit trust. Exposure to PE can offer potential benefits to investors looking to diversify their portfolio as it could lead to reaping potentially higher returns whilst mitigating risks over the long term.

Typically, PE investments can be made in established and growth-oriented businesses in the form of equity, or ownership stake. PE investments are made with the goal of unlocking the value of each portfolio company which can be achieved by way of implementing operational improvements alongside flexible capital structures providing adequate downside protection.

Loan Syndications

Borrowers who are seeking alternative sources of funding can do so via syndicated loans. A syndicated loan is a process of bringing together a group of lenders and comes into play when the funding required by a borrower is too large an exposure for a single lender. To overcome this, a syndicated loan is arranged so that multiple lenders are able to share the loan and associated risks. The borrower on the other hand, is also able to spread its funding risk amongst different lenders. Syndicated loans generally operate like an ordinary loan – there is an interest rate and a repayment date or schedule.

The SILC Group acts as arranger, facility agent and security trustee of syndicated loans whereby we arrange a panel of financial institutions to jointly provide the loan and we also act as the intermediary between the borrower and lenders to facilitate the process throughout the life of the loan, ensuring our clients have a single point of contact.
