Companies have a lot of decisions to make when considering debt financing: bank debt vs. bond, rated vs. unrated, secured vs. unsecured, maintenance vs. incurrence covenants, fixed vs. floating, etc.
With distributed products (bonds or Term Loan B), banks are conflicted because the investors are their clients as well. With loans, the banks are the counterparties and sit opposite the issuer.
