Commenting on the transaction, Ashwini Kumar Tewari, Managing Director, SBI said, “The successful launch of Syndicated loan at such a fine pricing demonstrates the kind of reputation SBI has created for itself in offshore financial markets allowing it to efficiently raise funds even during ongoing turbulence in the markets caused by geopolitical tensions and rate hike expectations by US Federal reserve and other central banks across the globe.
