A syndicated loan is a fundraising scheme in which an “arranger” (a lead financial institution) forms a syndicate of lenders to provide loans on the same terms and conditions under a single contract to satisfy the funding needs of clients. The SuMi TRUST Group uses syndicated loans not only for conventional corporate loans but also for real estate finance, ship finance, buyout finance, and other structured finance transactions.
