Independent conflict review services

For primary issues, the Portfolio Manager provides the loan list/tape and the supporting credit memos and financials.

Our team will perform the following:

  • The loan tape/loan list is reviewed and assessed to contain the necessary data/information to perform the review.
  • Perform both qualitative and quantitative analysis of the data presented on the underlying credit memorandum.
  • Assess the credit quality of the loan.
  • Predetermine a price variation acceptance level with the Portfolio Manager with respect to Original Issue Discount (OID) for primary issued loans.
  • Exposure assessments upon request, can be performed to ensure the portfolio is not over exposed to one position in an event of default.

As pricing support for broadly syndicated loans (BSL) is largely available on the secondary market from third party platforms, we can find better comfort on the arm’s length of a transaction with independent pricing.

Our team will:

  • Review each trade against a third party independent pricing platform.
  • Analyse the trade price according to the third party independent pricing source, industry best-practice and reasonable arm’s length tolerance levels.
