Now in its seventh year, the flagship Singapore Insolvency Conference seeks to attract judges, lawyers, accountants, bankers, distressed investors, regulators. Last year’s edition saw a record 400 attendees from Singapore, the region (including ASEAN) and around the world. Held once again at the Marina Bay Sands, this year’s conference will adopt a format that facilitates a more interactive and personal learning experience and provides a forum for interdisciplinary discourse. 

The Amendments to the Singapore Companies Act came into force on 23 May 2017, heralding a brave new world in corporate reorganisation and rescue in Singapore. Since then, more than 15 new cases have been brought before the Courts based on these new reforms. Singapore’s first “pre-packaged” Scheme of Arrangement was sanctioned by the Court in January 2018. The Court also handed down its first decision on super priority rescue financing. One year on we seek to know where are we and where do we go from here? The omnibus Insolvency Bill which is expected to be unveiled in the second half of 2018 seeks to further enhance Singapore’s status as a leading centre for cross-border debt restructuring. 

Once again, Singapore Insolvency Conference 2018 is going to be the forum where first class panellists will provide both thought-leadership and informative insights. Also making a comeback this year is the Judicial Colloquium and the well-received mock JIN hearing. 

There will be technical sessions relating to among others:- 
• Litigation Funding; 
• Cross Border Operational Restructuring; 
• Distress/Rescue Financing;
• Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery in Cross-Border Insolvencies;  
• Strategy/Forum Shopping for Regional Restructurings involving Multiple Jurisdictions;  
• Financial Restructuring;  
• Valuation of Distressed Assets; 
• Enforcement in the Face of Insolvency and Solutions;  
• Lecture on Singapore Restructuring and Insolvency Regime; and 
• Distressed Investment Opportunities in Asia.  

Delegates also get to attend a networking reception hosted by the International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation, for an evening of camaraderie and relationship building. 

Last year’s conference was hugely oversubscribed. Do book your seats early to avoid disappointment!
