    any difference?

    A considerable proportion of international lending does take this latter form.

    My question is, does "a considerable proportion of lending" account to "a lending of considerable proportion"?

    Thanks.

    They are different. :)

    X is a part of Y
    1. A considerable portion of (belonging to, within, inside of) international lending

    X is lent out to Z
    2. A lending of (this much) a considerable portion to Z.

    All the best,
