John Han and Jason Kang on Distressed Debt Opportunities in China and Asia at Debtwire Forum
October 5, 2022
With liquidity risks rising in the Chinese property sector in particular, investors are looking for solutions – as well as opportunities. Kobre & Kim’s John Han and Jason Kang, who both focus on Greater China and Asia-related distressed debt monetization, share their insights during two respective panels at the Debtwire Forum Asia Pacific in Hong Kong on October 13, 2022.
At 11:00 am Hong Kong time, Mr. Han will moderate and speak on the panel “China: More Trouble on the Horizon?” examining China’s deteriorating corporate environment and whether the downward spiral of defaults can be stopped. The panel will examine the current credit landscape in China; how the debt issues are likely to be resolved; the opportunity set for local and international credit investors; and how investors can navigate the market.
At 2:00 pm, Mr. Kang will join the panel “Asia Distressed Opportunities: A Rising Tide?” to discuss the outlook and competitive landscape for distressed debt and special situations in Asia, as well as what opportunities might merge. The panel will examine whether the rapidly deteriorating macro environment is changing the landscape of Asian distressed debt; the key drivers generating opportunities; the most attractive geographies and sectors and distressed investors; and the distressed opportunities expected in the next 12 to 18 months.
