CREDITOR ENGAGEMENT CLAUSES
– Market Perspectives on Pro's and Con's
Monday, April 13, 2015
A Joint Presentation with ICMA and IIF
360 Madison Avenue, 17th Floor
(on 45th St. between Madison and 5th Aves.)
New York City
The ICMA sovereign debt contract reforms, including model aggregated collective action, pari passu, and creditor engagement clauses for inclusion in new sovereign bond contracts, were released in August 2014. They were endorsed by the IIF, and welcomed by many authorities and commentators as a means of facilitating collective action and avoiding restructuring disruptions. Although a number of sovereign issuers have adopted the new provisions, some aspects relating to creditor engagement have met with resistance and/or indifference.
At this joint IIF, ICMA and EMTA meeting, following roundtable meetings held in London on February 5 and in New York on March 2, buy-side market participants, along with leading capital markets and legal professionals, will provide the market perspectives on the pro's and con’s of including creditor engagement provisions in sovereign bond contracts.
A Washington, DC panel on April 19 is also being organized by IIF to coincide with the upcoming joint IMF/World Bank meetings in April.
