About LSTA

The LSTA has been the leading advocate for the U.S. syndicated loan market since 1995, fostering cooperation and coordination among all loan market participants, facilitating just and equitable market principles, and inspiring the highest degree of confidence among investors in corporate loan assets.

The LSTA does this through a wide variety of activities:

  • We offer a full complement of documents and market practice standards for the primary and secondary markets. 
  • We work to establish standards for the settlement process.
  • We advocate in Washington to help shape guidance and regulations in the loan market.
  • We provide unique loan market data and analysis. 
  • We present conferences, and—for members only—a number of seminars, teach-ins, and webcasts on issues and developments in the loan market. 
  • We promote the loan asset class to institutional investors in the US and overseas.
