Foreign Banks Raising Capital in the U.S.

Foreign banks are increasingly looking to diversify their financing options. With careful planning, they can access U.S. investors without subjecting themselves to the securities registration requirements applicable to public offerings, or the ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to U.S. reporting companies. This webinar will explain how non-U.S. banks can pursue these funding avenues. Topics of discussion will include:

  • Issuances exempt from registration under Rule 144A;
  • Issuances that rely on registration exceptions provided by Securities Act Section 3(a)(2) for securities offered or guaranteed by banks;
  • Setting up a Rule 144A or bank note program for straight debt;
  • Issuing contingent capital or other securities convertible into equity upon the occurrence of a non-viability event;
  • Yankee CD programs; and
  • Banking and securities regulatory requirements to consider before setting up an issuance program.
