Independent service provider with unrivalled reach, offering a global and conflict-free service

Our clients and partners include banks, borrowers, corporates, funds, industry bodies, lenders and sovereigns. Within our agency services offering we have 11 subservices, covering all capital markets products.

Our agency services include acting as administrative agent, collateral agent, calculation agent, custodian, facility agent, monitoring agent, paying agent, loan agent, registrar, security agent and transfer agent. In addition, we offer process agency services in more than 30 locations.

These services cover all industries and asset classes, and we have the knowledge, expertise and footprint to support you both locally and globally.

Collateral agent and security agent

We act as collateral agent, security agent, security trustee and Latin American “agente de garantias” and “fiduciario” across all types of secured bonds and loans.

On multi-jurisdictional deals, we allocate the TMF Group office in the jurisdiction of the law governing the credit as the “global agent” and it appoints our offices in the location of the applicable collateral to each act as local collateral agent.

This ensures the borrower and lenders have a single point of contact and that the collateral is held by an experienced local team, with established service provider relationships. The global agent structure includes a coordination function which enables the parties to avoid any disconnect between the local collateral administration and the credit facility. The use of local offices from the outset of a transaction also ensures optimal efficiency in the event of a default or restructuring.

As an independent service provider, we offer a conflicts-free third party option, to act as successor collateral agent or new collateral agent on restructuring, refinancing and defaulted transactions.

Administrative agent and loan facility agent

We provide administrative agent and facility agent services to all types of loan facilities, from fixed rate bilateral loans to structured multi-party syndicated loans.

Our team has substantial experience and understanding of how to act as the interface between the different loan parties. We have a global offering, and currently administer loans created under the laws of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Germany, the Netherlands, Indonesia, Malaysia, New York, Singapore, Switzerland and the UK, among others.

We use industry-leading loan management software to maintain information and payment flows and our deep relationships with asset managers, banks, borrowers and funds helps ensure the efficient administration of a credit.

As an independent service provider, we offer a conflicts-free third party option, both from day one and as a successor administrative agent, in particular on a defaulted syndicated loan or multi-lender credit.
