Distressed Assets or Debts:
10 Dimensions to Design a Recovery Plan


About This Programme

Scenario planning for NPLs and non-performing portfolio companies can change the trajectory of distressed assets and avoid writing off bad debts or recognising investment losses. Getting off the “demise curve” requires early intervention made possible by a combination of scenario analysis and prescriptive pursuit of the available options to strategise for a fresh restart versus shutdown.

This IBF FTS and Core SFA/FAA CPD course equips both capital market and debt market players with the basic competencies in restructuring and insolvency to recommend to stakeholders actionable plans for debt rehabilitation or corporate rescue and avert the destiny of corporate bankruptcy.

This IBF course is conducted by two senior partners from Tan Kok Quan Partnership.
