Lucid Agency and Trustee Services Q1 2020 Business Update

Market conditions in the first quarter of 2020 saw unprecedented and challenging times for clients and our team. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a wave of urgent borrower drawdowns under committed credit lines and an unparalleled volume of lender enquiries were received and processed with speed and efficiency.

As a result, our team worked tirelessly to ensure that liquidity needs were met, and an increased volume of secondary market trades were settled within days. While some processes slowed, there was a resilience in the infrastructure markets. Our team recognized the ability of certain clients and their advisors to close deals and experienced a strong pipeline of new business enquiries and mandates.

In addition, Duff & Phelps acquired the Lucid Group of companies. We are extremely excited to work with our new colleagues across the globe strengthening our ability to provide clients with the highest quality agency and trustee services along with associated restructuring and other debt financing/M&A solutions.
