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 are focusing our calls in this teleconference series on different aspects of liability management and the relevant regulatory considerations.

In the second call of the series, on Thursday, May 13, Mayer Brown partners Charles Horn and Eddie Best will be discussing hybrid capital. They will discuss:

  • the regulatory framework for qualifying as regulatory capital and recently proposed changes
  • rating agency considerations
  • features of hybrid capital
  • recent market trends

In subsequent calls, we will be looking more closely at two other topics: 'Synthetic Transfer of Risk' and 'The Sale of Non-Performing Assets'.
