LSTA Meets With Rep. Andy Barr

This week LSTA members and staff met with Rep. Andy Barr (KY-06). Barr, a member of the House Financial Services Committee, has led bipartisan efforts to pass legislation that would have revised the Volcker Rule in a way that would have permitted banks to hold the debt securities of legacy CLOs and to revise the risk retention rule to allow managers to more easily comply. More recently, Barr was a key participant at a hearing of a subcommittee of the HFSC explaining that neither leveraged loans nor CLOs presented systemic risk.

What is ESG-Linked Lending and Why Do We Care?

That is the question answered by the sustainable finance panel at the 25th Annual Refinitiv LPC Loan Conference. Moderated by Maria Dikeos (Refinitiv LPC), the panel explored the recent growth of sustainability-linked loans (or ESG loans) in the U.S. Panelists included Sean Colvin (Louis Dreyfus), Gary Herzog (Credit Agricole), Carolyn Kee (Citiggroup), Claire O’Connor (Barclays Capital), Cara Younger (BBVA) and Tess Virmani (LSTA). The speakers outlined the benefits that these loans can have for the right borrower and also flagged some of the important considerations to be mindful of in structuring these loans.

While the daily SOFR spike grabbed the headlines this week, other LIBOR coverage should be noted as well. First, LIBOR’s end is trending. In an American Banker Bankshot podcast, the LSTA’s Meredith Coffey discussed exactly why LIBOR is going away, what the replacement rate likely would be, and why this is important to bankers and borrowers (and students and homeowners!).
