On 8th May 2014 an audience of bankers and lawyers attended a seminar on receivables financing organised by the project at the offices of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London. The discussion in the first session focused on how the rules on the registration of interests in receivables and priority between interests could be improved, and in the second session on whether there should be a (limited) override of ban on assignment clauses. There was some really excellent participation from those who were there, which the project will consider very carefully. We would like to thank everyone who attended.
The presentations given at the seminar are available here.
We are also keen to find out the views of anyone who is interested in this area but was unable to attend the seminar. We have drafted a survey which we distributed at the seminar. If you are involved in the receivables financing industry, please take a few moments to fill in the survey and send a scanned copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
