A hands-on 2-day workshop on recognizing emerging problem transactions and implementing a process for effectively managing and maximizing recoveries, with reference to the Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code

Banks that effectively manage their non-performing transactions understand the need for a disciplined structured approach to this key issue. This programme specifically addresses the management of non-performing transactions in India following the approval and implementation of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (‘IBC’).

The workshop will cover fundamental issues and solutions:
• Why borrowers and investees fail: the well-documented causes of failure, and how they differ from warning signals of impending failure 
• Financial and non-financial warning signals of impending failure 
• What a bank should do when a borrower defaults or looks like it is about to default 
• The five basic strategies available to a bank, and how to select the mix of strategies that suits each individual non-performing loan 
• Practical measures in implementing the strategy identified for each non-performing loan and default
• Accountability: ensuring that lessons are learned from non-performing loan losses

The emphasis of the Workshop:
• Practical 'know-how' from a seasoned practitioner who has many years of hands-on, practical knowledge in the management of non-performing transactions in Australia and across the Asia-Pacific and African regions, including more than 3 years managing non-performing loans and equities for the Asian Development Bank, and a 12-month contract managing non-performing loans for the African Development Bank 
• Key emerging threats and vulnerabilities in banks’ loan portfolios 
• The importance of acting quickly to take control of an actual or potential default 
• The five alternative key strategies for the management of non-performing transactions, and how to apply critical elements of the four strategies to each non-performing loan
