In the past few weeks, we have seen market turbulence following the bank failures in the US and the takeover by UBS of Credit Suisse in Switzerland. The circumvention of the priority of claims in the takeover of Credit Suisse where Additional Tier-1 bonds (“AT1”) were written-down ahead of equity has recently increased the focus on the features of loss-absorbing capital instruments such as AT1 bonds. In this seminar, we will discuss the legal framework governing bankruptcies and restructuring of banks, the features of different bank capital instruments, how they have performed and are priced in the market, and different perspectives from bank authorities to rating agencies.
Confirmed speakers and panelists include:
Sjur Swensen Ellingsæter, Associate Professor, Department of Law and Governance at BI Norwegian Business School. Professor Ellingsæter has recently written the book: “Creditor Priority in European Bank Insolvency Law: Financial Stability and the Hierarchy of Claims”. He will present the background to Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) and discuss different loss-absorbing instruments in banks and his view on recent developments.
