Panel Discussion: Taking stock
Almost everyone acknowledges that the current norms and systems are not enough. What amendments still need to be made to the bankruptcy law? Is the system infrastructure strong enough to handle the number of cases, and if not, how can the number of key participants including insolvency resolution professionals be boosted?

Panel Discussion: Flying under the radar
All eyes have been focused on the showcase 12 large debtors and the other large corporates neck-deep in debt. But a growing number of mid- and small-sized companies are also coming under the stressed assets radar. Are there enough suitors for these assets or will a sizeable chunk of them end up in the liquidation trench? Will lenders to these companies by default have to take a larger haircut to yield a resolution?

Panel Discussion: Which model is working for PE investors?
A few private equity firms have partnered with strategic buyers to tap into the stressed assets opportunity. Some are viewing the market with the lens of an asset restructuring company. Yet, others are adopting a vanilla approach with a stressed assets fund or eyeing exposure via their existing blind pool funds. Which model is bearing fruit? What are the learnings to date? What other structures can we expect going forward?
