We have launched our new introductory guide to sustainable finance, 'Getting Started in Sustainable Finance', produced in conjunction with the Association of Corporate Treasurers.
Intended for use by new entrants to the sustainable lending market, this guide describes the background to the emergence of sustainable lending, the global commitments driving the sustainability agenda, the range of products on offer and further resources at hand to help.
This webinar gives an overview of the new EU Directive on Non-Performing Loans and its impact for syndicated loan market participants, including:
- New obligations on EU banks selling non-performing loans;
- New obligations on purchasers of non-performing loans; and
- New obligations on entities providing credit servicing activities.
LMA publishes South African law revised replacement of screen rate language to assist with JIBAR transition
We have published a user guide and revised recommended form of replacement of screen rate clause for the LMA’s South African law documents (“SA revised replacement of screen rate clause”).
The SA revised replacement of screen rate clause is based on the LMA’s existing 2018 revised replacement of screen rate clause (as updated) produced in the context of LIBOR transition. However, it also has regard to the work of the MPG on sample reference language for bilateral loans and reflects specifics of the South African market and JIBAR transition. In order to provide additional context, there are footnotes explaining any differences in the LMA clause and the MPG sample clause.
We are pleased to have published an article focussing on mid-market sustainable finance, following a Regional Early Evening Seminar which we co-hosted with Browne Jacobson on 13 September 2023.
Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) occupy a large market share of the global economy, and it is therefore vital that SMEs are not left behind as economies transition towards sustainable economies. There are however various factors that may be limiting SMEs from accessing sustainable finance products. This article explores how to overcome such obstacles, highlighting the importance of supply chain finance, and approaching the 'Social' aspects of ESG as ways to drive engagement with sustainable finance products.
We are pleased to have published an updated CORRA Schedule which provides drafting for term CORRA in addition to compounded CORRA.
In addition, we have updated both our CORRA Schedule and TONA Schedule to reflect the updated definition of the “Daily Rate” in the updated IG compounded rate documents to provide for an interim fallback to a historic rate (prior to the application of a central bank rate plus any adjustment spread). This addresses what is sometimes referred to as the “Good Friday issue”.
