Loan participation (en särskild typ av riskkapitalplacering)

Det tycks handla om fonder som satsar pengar kapital i en särskild typ av högriskfinansiering. Bankerna återbetalar ränta över marknaden, mot den högre risken. Mig veterligt finns ingen direkt motsvarighet till denna typ av arrangemang i Sverige.

"Loan-participation funds invest in loans that are made by banks to companies with a low credit rating. The interest rate on these loans is variable, usually two or three percentage points higher than an interest-rate benchmark -- generally the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor). The beauty of these loans, though, is that they are considered senior secured debt, which means they are the first loans that are paid off if a company goes bankrupt, a real risk for some of these companies. That means the lenders typically recover about 80% of the value of their defaulted loans"
