Allen & Overy to host 4th annual Leveraged Finance Training Camp virtually on 21 October
17 September 2020
On October 21, 2020, A&O will host its fourth annual Leveraged Finance Training Camp (LFTC), offering junior and mid-level banking and credit professionals an in-depth look at the fundamental concepts and documentation underpinning leveraged finance and private debt transactions and the latest legal and commercial developments in the market. This unique program, hosted by our New York team, employs dynamic presentations and interactive sessions to offer, in the words of previous participants, “excellent training” on the Lev Fin industry and associated products that is “extremely helpful” for those nominated by their firms to attend.
Last year we brought together over 150 attendees from 30 major financial institutions for the live event in New York. This year we are pivoting to a remote platform and will virtually host well over 400 attendees from more than 40 firms, including a broad range of banks, private credit funds, private equity sponsors, corporates and other industry participants.
Presentations will be led by Allen & Overy partners and senior attorneys and will cover such topics as syndicated loans, private debt, acquisition finance, capital structures, cross-border considerations and market trends, focusing on both the concepts and documentation relevant to the business. In addition, the program will address timely topics including Credit in the Time of COVID, Case Studies in Covenant Utilization and the transition From LIBOR to SOFR.
“We enjoy hosting LFTC and are proud to draw such a robust and diverse audience from the leading shops across the industry. Shifting to a virtual platform for 2020 has enabled us to welcome an even broader array of participants and to engage with our clients wherever they reside. We have also refined the curriculum to reflect the latest developments in the leveraged finance space, such as the increasing prominence of private debt alongside syndicated loans as a top-tier financing solution,” said Todd Koretzky, a partner in the firm’s Leveraged Finance group in New York and the lead partner for LFTC.
