Training Introduction

The International Loan Documentation provides a highly practical and comprehensive resource for bankers and lawyers, at all levels of experience, involved in international lending.
Proper documentation is important in because the quality of documentation in the loan portfolio is directly related to credit quality ratings assigned by bank examiners. For example, examiners under the heading special mention classify a loan with an inadequate loan agreement or poor collateral control. It means that the loan is a potentially weak credit, and deficiencies in documentation need to be corrected to assure full repayment according to the original loan agreement.


By the end of the MasterClass, the participants will understand

  • The International Syndicated Loan Process
  • The repayments and Cancellations
  • The Pari Passu Covenant
  • The Finance Parties Relationship
  • The material Adverse Change Clause

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
