For Lenders, Real-Time Analysis Mandates Caution: Q&A

Tauro Capital Advisors Senior Director Anthony Johnston on how lenders’ approaches to evaluating potential deals have shifted.

As lenders and sponsors have gradually adjusted to closing deals in the age of COVID-19, certain standards have shifted and caution has taken center stage. When it comes to evaluating a new deal, lenders are going the extra mile, scrutinizing current market dynamics and carefully reviewing sponsors’ track records and balance sheets.

Anthony Johnston, senior director at Tauro Capital Advisors, spoke to Commercial Property Executive about lenders’ new approach amid the pandemic, capital flows and what to expect from the financial markets going into next year.
