Workshop Highlights

Join us to hear two panels of experts highlighting the standard documentation used in participating trade assets to the secondary market. The first day’s panel will focus on the BAFT MPA forms under English and New York laws, and the second day will cover the IIFM-BAFT Islamic forms. Each panel will present the highlights of the forms followed by a panel discussion with bank practitioners.
