Luxembourg as a leading financial centre, places itself at the heart of the financial market. To attract investments to or through Luxembourg, the Luxembourg law on financial collateral arrangements has implemented in Luxembourg a strong and creditor friendly regime for the provision of collateral over financial instruments and claims. As a result, many transactions currently include Luxembourg vehicles as collateral providers and/or Luxembourg located secured assets, to facilitate financial transactions.
The Luxembourg law on financial collateral arrangements also improves the legal certainty of financial collateral arrangements by ensuring that certain provisions of insolvency law do not affect the benefits and protections created by such arrangements.
This workshop aims at providing a clear understanding of the main features and relevance of the Luxembourg law on financial collateral arrangements, illustrated with the financial collateral arrangements most commonly used in finance transactions.
