By Reuters News — 3 years ago

KKR and Australia’s Allegro Funds have agreed to buy around A$350 million ($364 million) distressed commercial loans from a unit of Lloyds Banking Group, writes Reuters. The deal is the latest in a series of portfolio loan sales struck in Asia, as new capital requirements force European lenders to retreat from the region and focus on their home markets.
