LCM professionals work with and advise the front office marketing (origination) units in order to successfully pitch corporate and financial sponsor clients in a combined effort to win lead-mandates for syndicated loan facilities.

Once a lead mandate for a syndicated loan is received, the LCM team is responsible for execution and distribution of loans to both banks and institutional investors. Our Latin America vertical within the LCM group focuses on executing project and corporate finance transactions throughout the region, especially in countries where SMBC has a presence such as Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Peru.
