Absolute Priority: Shearman & Sterling Finance Experts On Cross-Border Anti-Net Short Trends

Partner Philip Stopford (London-Finance) and associate Maria Cornilsen (London-Finance) hosted a podcast with Debtwire in which they discussed cross-border anti-net short trends. This podcast explores the topic of anti-net short investor protections and how this relatively new mechanic to leveraged finance transactions has evolved over a short period of time.

Topics covered include:

  • An introduction to anti-net short investor protection, what the mechanic protects against, and how it provides for this protection
  • The motivations behind issuers, borrowers and sponsors introducing this language into their loan and bond documentation
  • The future of anti-net short investor provisions on the US and Europe

If you have any questions on the topics discussed in this podcast, please get in touch with Philip Stopford or Maria Cornilsen.
