Bringing about increased efficiencies and standardisation
Developing markets offer great opportunities as global dynamics shift, demand for their resources increases and new technologies evolve. At the LMA, we seek to bring about increased efficiencies and standardisation in developing markets, whilst educating our members about the opportunities and challenges they may face when operating in these regions.
The Equator Principles Association (EPA) has published a guidance note on the implementation of the Equator Principles during the Covid-19 pandemic (the Guidance). The Guidance is intended to provide practical guidance for both Equator Principle Finance Institutions (EPFIs) and borrowers on how to manage Covid-19 related risks to Equator Principles compliance and is intended to apply to Equator Principles 3 (EP3) and Equator Principles 4 (EP4).
