(on 45th St. between Madison and 5th Aves.)
New York City

Following the resolution of the Argentine legal case, this Special Seminar will discuss another legal case which may be of great interest to EM investors.

Peru’s Land Reform Bonds have been in default for over 20 years. The Seminar will provide background, analysis and commentary by leading legal and academic experts on the case, including a review of a key court decision issued by Peru’s highest court and the prospects for future arbitration claims.

Issues to be addressed on the panel will include:

  • What is the appropriate disclosure of such a default in SEC filings?
  • How should ratings agencies incorporate the default into their credit analysis? 
  • How should a sovereign cure a default in a currency that has twice been replaced? 
  • How will the arbitration process work? 
  • How is this case going to be resolved and how will the incoming administration address the aforementioned concerns?
