Loan House of the Year: BBVA

Loan House of the Year: BBVA

In the Latin American capital markets, this bank has made a name for itself by pioneering innovative financing solutions. Yet engineering new products has not come at the expense of overall deal volume. It ranked at the top of Latin American loan league tables.

Among the list of its most innovative deals was Iberdrola’s $400 million term loan, the first green loan in Latin America. Since then, the bank has replicated the green loan structure across the region. In October, it led the first green loan in Peru for Ferreycorp.

While this bank may differentiate its loan practice through innovative structuring, it also led sizeable deals over the finish line. These include the first syndicated loan for a Mexican state—a MXN20 billion pesos deal for Chihuahua and Coppel’s MXN36 billion peso. The latter was the largest syndicated loan in Mexican history.

Please congratulate BBVA for winning the Loan House of the Year Award.
