International bank lending is an active part of the business of major banks. However, competition from nonbanks and the development of securities markets have changed the nature of the business. Traditional loan syndications continue to occur, but these have been supplemented by an increasing involvement in leveraged finance. Commercial banks still dominate the syndicated loan business and are able to use their placing power and willingness to extend credit to muscle into the riskier, but seemingly more profitable leveraged loan and other underwriting and advisory businesses traditionally dominated by investment banks.

Keywords:   international lending, leveraged finance, loan syndications
