Dancing with wolves: syndicated loans and the economics of multiple lenders

A firm?s passage from borrowing from a single lender to using multiple lenders is often viewed as an inevitable progression in the life of a firm.

Foreign currency loans and systemic risk in Europe

Foreign currency loans to the unhedged non-banking sector are remarkably prevalent in Europe and create a significant exchange-rate-induced credit risk to European banking sectors.
