Credit analysis for sureties is changing – how should they respond?

Gateley Legal

  • Time: 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.
  • Update / Virtual

We will be joined at this virtual event by Shaun O’Callaghan, Partner and UK Head of Restructuring and Debt Advisory at Grant Thornton. Sean will be presenting on how credit analysis for sureties is changing, including on the following topics: 

  • Whilst interest rates now look more likely to start to fall during 2024, the era of the central banks’ zero interest rate policies is over.
  • How more structured debt facilities are being used by larger mid-market and large corporates, increasingly provided by private debt funds rather than banks.
  • These facilities are often replacing unsecured banking facilities, changing the rules of credit analysis for unsecured creditors.
  • So with this in mind, how should sureties be responding?
