This is a testament to our team’s hard work, expertise, creativity and ability to adapt to a rapidly changing world to provide bespoke, client-focused solutions.”
U.S. Securitization partner Nicholas Robinson added: “In addition to advising clients on new issuances, resets and refinancings in the broadly syndicated and middle market CLO space, we are also very active in bespoke term portfolio accumulation facilities. There continues to be a new and exciting pipeline of deals in the CLO market and we are looking forward to building on our continued growth and success in 2021.”
