KBank puts focus on syndicated loans

Mr. Suwat Techawatanawana, KBank Executive Vice President,

Kasikornbank's (KBank) corporate loan business will focus on syndicated loans to diversify risk as its corporate loan segment posted high single-digit growth in the first half.

The country's fourth largest lender by assets has several syndicated loan deals worth hundreds of billions of baht in the pipeline, said executive vice-president Suwat Techawatanawana. The deals are for infrastructure projects, mergers and acquisitions, and project financing.

With commercial banks' larger capital base, the minimum amount of syndicated loan today is generally 10 billion baht, compared with 2-3 billion in the past.
