  • 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
  • PwC Tower, 18 York Street, Suite 2600


Registration is closed

Join TMAC Toronto and a panel of senior professionals as we discuss bank relationship management and effective ways to build collaborative partnerships with core banks and secondary partners.  Panelists will also explore the process of loan refinancing, accessing capital markets for the first time, how to prepare for these periodic events and discuss current market dynamics and trends that may impact you.  If the negotiation of credit agreements is new for you, we will outline the key internal and external parties that you should include in the end-to-end financing process and what may have changed over time.  Lastly, panelists will look forward and provide insight into what they expect may be the next form of debt financing, what will present the greatest challenges for practitioners and how you can prepare for those possibilities.

Don't miss this chance to network with industry peers and gain up-to-date perspectives on this important area of finance.
