Distressed Conference: Booth's 9th Annual Credit, Restructuring, Distressed Investing & Turnaround Conference

On April 4, Booth will be hosting its 9th annual CReDIT Conference (CReDIT = Credit, Restructuring, Distressed Investing & Turnaround). We've covered the event in the past as this conference has always had a strong focus on distressed debt investing. The distressed investing panel includes a good friend of mine, Matt Dundon of Pine River Capital, Triet Nguyen of Axios, and Dave Trucano at Blackrock.

Other speakers include representatives of Peter J Solomon, Centerview, Lazard, Rothschild, Wynnchurch, Jones Day, Davis Polk, Faegre Baker and Kirkland. The keynotes this year include Jack Butler, who recently moved to Hilco from Skadden, Mark Okada, CIO at Highland, and Stuart Davies, PM and head of Special Situations at Sankaty.

Hope to see you there!



10th Annual Wharton Restructuring and Distressed Investing Conference

Over the past few years, Distressed Debt Investing has attended and covered the annual Wharton Restructuring and Distressed Investing Conferences. The event is always top notch and probably does the best out of many distressed conferences I've attended in presenting a full view of the distressed investing process from operations, legal, and financial.

Wharton will be hosting their 10th annual Restructuring and Distressed Investing Conference on Friday February 21st. The keynotes speakers are really amazing:

  • Kevyn Orr, Emergency Manager of Detroit
  • Jack Butler, Partner at Skadden
  • Michael Weinstock, CEO of Monarch
  • Michael Psaros, Co-Founder of KPS
The panels at the conference include ones focused on distressed PE, Hedge Funds, a case study of Rescap, among others. Panelists include representatives from Davis Polk, Cravath, Weil Gotshal, Lazard, Bayside, Versa, Schulte Roth Zabel, Kramer Levin, Paulson & Co, Kirkland, Ropes & Gray, Blackstone, and GSO to name a few. 

We will be in attendance and look forward to seeing you there! For more information you can visit the conference website here: http://www.wrdic.org/
