Innovation in Debt syndication

Businesses are often funded by own capital and borrowed capital. Most borrowings are from banks and other financial institutions. However, there are some critical questions that you need to ask yourself while taking debt capital;

•  What happens after you take a loan?

•  Are you sure, that the bank charges you the same rate of interest, as per sanction letter? Have you cross checked?

•  How many details you submit to a bank, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and annually?

•  Do you know the ageing of your customers? (the delay in payment)

•  Do you plan your balance sheets and cash flows, in advance, for bank submissions?

•  How about a review of quarterly projections vs actual?

•  Do you prepare data in advance for 'external credit rating'?

•  Have you planned for annual renewal and enhancement of funding limits?


Understanding your need for financial management we have introduced an end-to-end tracking system for a sound debt position called ‘TRACK’, that will Monitor, Consult and Execute all activities related to meeting all debt-related compliance requirements of banks/ financial institutions and, for enhancing the overall debt rating and eligibility through prudent financial management.
