Finance Update


In this issue we also look at some of the practical issues impacting financing practices in a variety of European and emerging markets. This includes looking at new legislation to open up markets such as the covered bond market in Poland and issues to consider when relying on English law guarantees in Ukraine. In the derivatives sector we look at the impact on swap practice in Italy of the court decision in Dexia Crediop v Commune di Prato and we continue our review of the impact of new regulation looking at the Resolution Stay Protocol in Germany and, in relation to EMIR, by looking at the implications for certain types of swap counterparty.
