Maria Thonon's specialisms
Loan agency and security trustee services
SANNE was the first independent provider to enter the European market and deliver ISAE3402 accredited services to asset managers in the nascent direct lending and private real estate finance market. Our loan agency services have proven to be flexible, cost effective and conflict-free – for both lenders and borrowers. The team comprises highly experienced professionals from the banking industry, as well as buy side asset managers, resulting in a comprehensive, commercial approach to a key service within debt market transactions.
In addition to primary loan agency appointments, SANNE has frequently been appointed as replacement agent in situations where the incumbent’s position has become untenable or lenders have proactively decided to change the counterparty. We are also able to act as note trustee and escrow agent, completing the all in one service required by clients, with our service characterised by independence and integrity. Our agency team provides a wealth of experience and a responsive service for clients across the life cycle of any deal, including transaction closing, ongoing provision of accurate and timely information, cash movements and ensuring the necessary protocols are followed upon restructuring.
SANNE acts as independent facility agent and security trustee for leading asset managers, financial institutions and international corporates.
