  • Antares Quotables

    6/8/2016

    Current conditions in the leveraged loan market are very borrower-friendly.  A low level of M&A-related volume, combined with significant repayments, has created a supply/demand imbalance that favors issuers.

    “Antares is always one of our first options to lead because of our long-term relationship, the trust we have in them and the hold sizes that they bring to the table.”

  • Ongoing Support

    After closing the initial transaction, we continue to support our clients for the entire life of a loan. We have the breadth of expertise our clients can rely on over the long haul, even during uncertain times.
