Syndicated loans involve the lending of substantial sums, the underwriting and management of which are handled by more than one financial institution.

The lenders often come from different regions of the world and are rarely located in the country of the borrower. Syndicated loans have been one of the most significant instruments of international finance to emerge since World War II. Their popularity increased until 1982, had a setback for the next four years (until 1986), and improved considerably by 1988 but has been stagnant since. The syndicated loan affords borrowers access to large amounts of money that single lenders cannot or will not supply. Common uses of syndicated loans have been to cover balance-of-payments deficits and to finance the types of major development. Because of the way syndicated loans are managed, there is also a convenience factor--the proposed credit, which may, in the end, involve anywhere from 4 to 100 lenders.
