NYSSA Distressed Investors Market Panel

On July 19th, the New York Society of Security Analysts will hold a panel discussion on the distressed debt investing environment. It looks to be a fantastic event that all distressed debt professionals in the NYC area should attend. Here are the topics that will be discussed:

  • Landmark bankruptcies and legal decisions, and their impact on the future of distressed investing
  • Current credit markets and whether we are in the midst of another credit bubble similar to 2006 and 2007 with the return of covenant-lite deals and dividend recaps
  • Where is value in the current market
  • Issues in leveraged loan and high yield documentation that are likely to lead to problems or litigation in the next downturn
  • How high of a hurdle could the impending “maturity wall” prove to be
  • Potential impact on debt markets and the economy from inflation
One of our contributors, Joshua Nahas, Principal of Wolf Capital Advisors will be one of the moderators of the event. Panelists include:
  • Varun Bedi - Tenex Capital
  • David Jackson - Penn Capital Management
  • Andrew Milgram - CIO and Managing Partner of Marblegate Asset Management
  • Derek Pitts - Houlihan Lokey
  • Justin Smith - Covenant Xtract

Is this an event where the audience will mostly listen to the discussion taking place, or will they be actively involved?

Is there time to speak to people individually before/after the event?

I'm considering showing up, but it is a bit of a trip for me (I'll be in Ohio, but it would give me a chance to visit some friends in NY)
