The collaboration is intended to bring Australian borrowers to high yield bond markets and to the US term loan B instruments. This was said last Thursday by bank sources that are familiar with the report.

The sources asked to be unnamed as they were not authorized to speak regarding said matter. Spokesperson from NAB decline to comment while the Wells Fargo spokesperson was not immediately available to release statements.

Numerous Australian firms have made it successfully to the TLB market in the last 12 months. According to Loan Pricing Corp data, a year to date issuance of instruments reached US$3.74 billion.
