Hybrid Capital

03/04/2010 08:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Please join us at Morrison & Foerster, or by dial in, to discuss the market for hybrid securities.  During the financial crisis, hybrid securities were not as loss absorbing for their issuers as some expected.  A number of governments conditioned aid on deferring hybrid payments, in some cases resulting in losses for investors.  Now discussions are underway on changing regulation and harmonizing definitions of Tier 1 products.  Debate has also focused on contingent capital—the newest hybrid.    

The panel will discuss:

  • A review of hybrid securities (tax characteristics, legal form, ratings treatment);
  • An assessment of the hybrid market and performance of hybrids;
  • Tangible common equity and other measures;
  • Recent issuances of hybrid securities in the US and Europe;
  • Changes to the ratings framework;
  • Regulatory capital discussions in the US and in the EU; and
  • Contingent capital instruments.

Speakers include:
Thomas A. Humphreys, Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
Anna T. Pinedo, Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
Anthony Ragozino, Managing Director – Head of Capital Products, UBS Investment Bank
