Structuring Margin Loans for PE Funds and Addressing Key Facility Terms With Lenders

With a potential recession looming, PE sponsors are always looking for new sources of liquidity beyond well-established options already in the market such as subscription facilities and net asset value facilities. To that end, Strafford CLE Webinars recently hosted a program to examine margin credit facilities for PE sponsors. The panel, featuring Haynes and Boone partners LeAnn L. Chen and Craig S.
