Cadwalader partner Daniel Tobias spoke with Creditflux reporter Hugh Minch about market preparation for the new European Union securitization regulation reporting standards as part of the Creditflux CLO Symposium and Manager Awards in London on May 8.
Tobias addresses the sanctions that may arise from negligence or intentional infringement on behalf of issuers or managers; and specifically, in the case of managers who suffer such sanctions, pushback from investors who do not want deal issuers to be responsible for those fees.
He also comments on how the forthcoming release of new templates will require cooperation among collateral administrators, managers and issuers to agree on standards for their reporting and application.
Tobias, who practices in Cadwalader’s Capital Markets Group, also participated in the event’s panel discussion titled “Dispatches from the CLO Trenches.” He was joined by co-panelist Chris Desmond, Partner, Dechert; and Seth Brumby, Head of Americas, Creditflux, who moderated.
