Legal expert Belle Yang, Senior Legal Analyst, CreditSights, will cover the evolution in bond issuance and changes in structuring over the last credit cycle and how they may effect chances of default and recoveries. Belle will highlight the key issues that debt investors need to be aware of as the cycle turns.
