Global loan markets and the subprime-crises have experienced significant demand-supply distortions, soaring price volatility, as well as drastic and unexpected flow constraints or surpluses, particularly due to the more frequent and deeper financial crises affecting different regions or markets. As understood from the public discussions, loan trades are the appropriate measure for the time being. This comprehensive, authoritative and multidisciplinary practitioner's manual is structured in a way that the principles of arranging, servicing, financing and exit strategies of such transactions will be dealt with. It contains country reports for specific jurisdictions and describes local law requirements which need to be considered when implementing performing and non-performing loan transactions.
