Restructure with foresight

Potential, Challenges & Outlook in APAC

room Live Virtual Briefing
  • Governments in Asia have so far responded to the coronavirus with various monetary and fiscal measures to help support their economies while temporary amendments to insolvency laws have also been made to help companies that, amid sudden cash flow crunches, are finding themselves unable to service their debt. But given the virus’ impact will likely have a longer and more profound effect than was anticipated, it is almost certain restructurings and bankruptcies will skyrocket around the region. For many investors looking to explore the opportunities that will arise in the coming year, it will be essential to understand the different economic, governmental and legal frameworks of each country in the region, and how risks can be mitigated.
