DEFINITION of 'Tender Panel'

A method of financing pursuant to the sale of Euro notes through a revolving underwriting facility.

Tender panels are used to place medium-term Euro notes with large numbers of investors. They also separate the bank originating the issue from the purchasing banks. This effectively reallocates the credit risk among a large number of participants.
