INSOL Financiers’ Group Interactive Forum: Banking failures and impact on stakeholders

See below to view the recording from Monday 12 April 2021

This session, hosted by EY, looks at the impact and administration of failed financial institutions. In the session, we consider how the regime for dealing with financial institution failures has evolved as a consequence of the global financial crisis, how that drives the behaviours and approach of representatives of those institutions and how that can impact other financial institutions when interacting with the failed entity.

Leading practitioners from EY speak to their own experiences when dealing with failed financial institutions:
