Seminar on Bail-in
The European Society for Banking and Financial Law (AEDBF), a European association of professionals, which is specialized in the legal aspects of banking, financial and capital market sector (www.aedbf.eu), and the Institute for Law and Finance (ILF) at the Goethe University Frankfurt (www.ilf-frankfurt.de) would like to invite you to a conference on resolution mechanisms with a special focus on Bail in - its concept, scope and practical challenges.
In July 2014, the Directive establishing a framework for recovery and resolution of credit institutions (BRRD) has come into force in the EU. As part of the BRRD, several resolution tools are introduced, amongst which is a bail-in mechanism. The bail in will allow resolution authorities to apply debt to equity swaps to banks which are otherwise expected to fail. However, the scope, the practical application and its implications still are subject to many questions. We would therefore like to discuss these topics with you and have assembled a panel of practitioners, representatives from authorities, academics and bankers being experts in this field.
