The recent financial crisis, and the subsequent market and regulatory responses, continue to put the balance sheets of many financial institutions under stress.

For those tasked with managing the capital strength of financial institutions, keeping up with the options in this regulated environment can be a challenge. So, each week during the month of May, we will be focusing our calls in this teleconference series on different aspects of liability management and the relevant regulatory considerations.

In the first call of the series, on Thursday May 6, Mayer Brown partners Eddie Best and David Bakst will be discussing liability management and will highlight a number of balance sheet restructuring techniques that issuers are utilizing in the current market.
In subsequent calls, we will be looking more closely at three specific topics:

  • Hybrid Capital
  • The Sale of Non-Performing Assets
  • Synthetic Transfer of Risk
