Foreign banks are increasingly seeking to diversify their financing opportunities. With careful planning, banks can access U.S. investors without subjecting themselves to the securities registration requirements applicable to public offerings and to ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to U.S. reporting companies.

Topic will also Include:

  • Issuances exempt from registration under Rule 144A;
  • Issuances that rely on exception from registration provided by the 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 covered bonds in reliance on Rule 144A or Section 3(a)(2);
  • Yankee CD programs; and
  • Banking and securities regulatory requirements to consider prior to setting up and issuance program.
