We will be discussing the latest issues being faced by firms in light of the disruption to business and market volatility caused by the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
On this call, in light of the difficulties being encountered by companies as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and the likelihood that this may result in defaults in due course, we will consider the impact which decisions which parties or governments may take in relation to the rights and obligations of parties to financial contracts may have on credit derivative transactions, as well as practical steps for buyers and sellers of credit protection to consider to prepare themselves for Covid-19 related credit events. We will also take a look back at events over the past year, including the 2019 Narrowly Tailored Credit Events amendments which came into effect in January 2020 and noteworthy recent Credit Derivatives Determinations Committees determinations. Anne Drakeford will chair the discussion with colleagues Tim Cleary and Greg Chartier.
