Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The emergence of the financing lender in the context of corporate management requires the measurement of all the consequences that could arise to the company, to the shareholders and other stakeholders. Despite the important role that the lender can play on the corporate governance, we must recognise possible situations of lender opportunism. This essay focuses on the inclusion of covenants in loan agreements and has the purpose of analysing the limits on the lender’s influence on corporate governance, as well as wether they could be liable for their opportunistic behavior.
