Led by Mr Ashok Kumar, this webinar will highlight the key issues that commonly arise in the bond restructuring context. Focussing on the USA, UK, Australia and Hong Kong (given their developed bond market and common law background), the panel, consisting of Ms Katherine Abrat, Mr Cedric Van den Borren and Mr Andrew Chen, will explore and consider the market practices and legislation of these foreign jurisdictions that could be adapted as they share their proposal for possible reform of Singapore’s bond restructuring laws in the following areas :
1. The formation and co-ordination amongst creditor committees;
2. Dealing with material non-public information;
3. The roles of trustees;
4. Beneficial bondholders’ direct enforcement rights; and
5. Voting structures in the context of a bond restructuring.

Whether you are a trustee, individual or institutional investor, lawyer practicing in bond origination, or restructuring and insolvency, this webinar is for you. So do join our speakers as they share their recommendations on the approach to be adopted and suggestions on the best practices.
