Considering that the nitty-gritty of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code has now been ironed out, more investors will be interested in stressed asset investments in India.
However, the managing director of SBI, state bank of india said that all the challenges of these resolution process are large size of creditor community especially in the loan assets. In her words- “Adding to the complication is the multiple classes of lenders. For example, you are familiar with large housing finance companies (HFCs) we are trying to resolve with multiple classes of creditors that are governed by multiple regulators. Our big challenge is in managing this.The other challenge is the multiple banking arrangements that were created to ensure the flow of credit to needy sectors. But this has further complicated the situation at the resolution stage. There are multiple lenders with multiple security structures. How do you handle this kind of alphabet soup when you need to find a resolution? There are huge conflicts of interest,”
