Cross-Border Financing Resource Kit


This resource kit provides an overview of financing in cross-border transactions. The international element can take many different forms, including loans to a non-U.S. borrower and guarantees or security interests granted by non-U.S. loan parties. Issues can crop up in many areas of the financing: documentation (such as the inclusion of covenants, representations, and warranties specific to foreign borrowers), managing a more complicated closing process (such as coordinating the efforts of local counsel and specialists), perfecting security interests, and regulatory requirements (whether in making loans or taking security interests). This resource kit includes Practical Guidance materials on all of these issues and concerns, including detailed practice notes, templates, and checklists. This guidance also covers general financing topics that generally have a cross-border element, such as requirements to comply with an Islamic financing-compliant transaction.
