The proposed project consist of a senior syndicated loan to be extended to Banca Romana pentru Dezvoltare (“BRD”) by the EBRD and several commercial banks under an EBRD A/B structure.
The syndicated loan package will be used to increase BRD’s source of funding which will allow BRD to support its continuous expansion and to introduce new corporate, SME and retail banking products.
The project will allow to support a strong local bank by mobilising long term resources from the market.
BRD’s extensive branch network will allow the bank to develop business all over Romania with high standards of service. The business financed by the loan will comprise SME finance, long term loans to corporates and retail business such as mortgages.
The operation will also test the appetite of the participants in syndicated markets for long term instruments in Romania and have a demonstration effect for other banks in the country.
