In directly confronting the financial challenges in Europe, banks are reassessing which of their portfolio assets remain a good fit with their business and risk models. As a result of these reviews, many banks are changing and refining their strategies and policies relating to risk, liquidity and equity control, and are implementing the sale of what they have newly determined are non-strategic assets (including loans). These assets, with an estimated value near EUR 950 billion, provide significant opportunities for investors.

On March 1, please join our partners Jörg Wulfken, Simon G. Grieser and Jon D. Van Gorp, as they provide an overview of the current European market and the opportunities that it presents. They will also review the range of deal structures currently being used—paying particular attention to the key issues for potential US investors.
