The article reports on the growth of a number of smaller commercial banks buying leveraged loans in the first half of 2010 and the forecast that it will continue to grow as they look to deploy capital. It notes that the growth will affect the way new deals are shaped because underwriters are arranging larger term loan A pieces and smaller institutional tranches. The growth will also help determine what types of deals underwriters want.
