Floating-Rate Loan Primer
• Corporate debt issued by below-investment-grade borrowers.
• Most issuers are significant in size and scale – and many are familiar household names.
• Companies undertake loans for recapitalisations, acquisitions and refinancings.
• Coupon income from floating-rate loans resets regularly (about every 40-60 days on average) to maintain a fixed spread over a variable base rate, usually LIBOR.
• Loans are often referred to as “senior and secured”: They typically have the highest priority of claims in an issuer’s capital structure and are secured by specific collateral.
• Other common monikers: bank loans, leveraged loans, senior loans.
