Be a better borrower

As syndicated lending volumes soar to record highs across the globe, borrowers now more than ever need to report consistently to keep investors informed throughout the life of the bond. However, many issuers of debt private placement use inefficient, manual processes to communicate with investors, such as FedEx or e-mail, which constitute risk for involved parties. Such outdated methods are familiar ways to circulate information, but they can have serious consequences, including compromising high-value information and causing inaccurate submissions. One accidental mishap can cause a loss of investor confidence.

Streamlined communication and collaboration facilitates a smooth reporting process, ultimately reducing risk and managing information in real-time. Streamlined collaboration platforms help reduce the time borrowers spend managing documents and information, allowing them to focus on reporting to investors. 

With Intralinks for Banking and Securities, users can develop new revenue sources, reduce operational expenses and improve customer experiences with enhanced communication – all while reducing risk by maintaining complete control over shared information. On the Be a Better Borrower page, learn how to improve bond reporting in five simple steps outlining the bond reporting lifecycle. We provide step-by-step instructions on how to set up your VDR, add users and groups, and create reports. 

If you’re attending the 2019 Private Placements Industry Forum at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida on January 22-25, 2019, stop by our booth to learn more about how Intralinks can assist with your institution’s reporting needs.
