Hybrid capital securities or 'hybrids' offer various benefits. They offer flexibility equity without shareholder dilution, provide protection to senior creditors, are a stable source of long-term funding for healthy companies, and help insurers and banks meet regulatory and rating agency capital requirements. Risks and features of hybrid securities are expressed in the credit spread of some relatively new financial instruments, but no structural fundamentals exist for to price hybrids precisely. This book proposes a model for the pricing of hybrids. It begins by explaining the concept of hybrids as well as their equity- and debt-like characteristics. Different types of hybrids are presented, including preference shares, convertible bonds, contingent convertibles (CoCos) and bail-in bonds. The authors then present analysis of regulatory regimes' impact on hybrids. They discuss the types of hybrid bonds that are contemplated in the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) and Banking Union mechanism. They then present an in-depth examination of hybrids pricing and risk assessment techniques. The book provides a comprehensive analysis from mathematical, legal and financial perspectives in order to look at relatively new financial instruments and address problems with the pricing models of hybrids which are as yet unsolved.

Social enterprises represent a new kind of venture, dedicated to pursuing profits for owners and benefits for society. Social Enterprise Law provides tools that will allow them to raise the capital they need to flourish. Social Enterprise Law weaves innovation in contract and corporate governance into powerful protections against insiders sacrificing goals such as environmental sustainability in the pursuit of short-term profits. Creating a stable balance between financial returns and public benefits will allow social entrepreneurs to team up with impact investors that share their vision of a double bottom line. Brakman Reiser and Dean show how novel legal technologies can allow social enterprises to access capital markets, including unconventional sources such as crowdfunding. With its straightforward insights into complex areas of the law, the book shows how a social mission can even be shielded from the turbulence of an acquisition or bankruptcy. It also shows why, as the metrics available to measure the impact of social missions on individuals and communities become more sophisticated, such legal innovations will continue to become more robust. By providing a comprehensive survey of the U.S. laws and a bold vision for how legal institutions across the globe could be reformed, this book offers new insights and approaches to help social enterprises raise the capital they need to flourish. It offers a rich guide for students, entrepreneurs, investors, and practitioners.

The 2008 global financial crisis ushered in the biggest explosion in new bank regulation around the world since the Great Depression. Even more so than then, this new regulation has been coordinated on a global basis and reflects global standards as well as local idiosyncracies. Although governments and regulators have sought to put measures in place to prevent the failure of banks, they have acknowledged the need for measures to address what happens when banks fail or are threatened with failure and how to resolve such failure. Bank Resolution and Crisis Management: Law and Practice deals with the measures which European, U.S. and international law and policy makers have sought to put in place to deal with the threat of financial institutions failing, including enhanced supervision, early intervention and so called 'living wills'. Measures such as 'bail-out' (protecting private shareholders and creditors against losses) and 'bail-in' (imposing losses on shareholders and long-term creditors without causing contagion among short-term creditors) are discussed. The work includes comprehensive summaries and commentary on the EU Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive, the UK resolution laws including the Banking Act 2009 and amendments to that act, the Orderly Liquidation Authority under Title II of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act, proposed new Chapter 14 to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, and the bank resolution provisions of the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Act. The book also provides detailed commentary on the provisions in the Banking Act 2009 dealing with resolution, including discussion of the stabilization, bank administration and insolvency powers. This includes analysis of secondary legislation such as the Partial Transfers Order. Special emphasis is given to the practical effect of such measures on financial transactions and their impact on arrangements, such as netting and set-off. There is also commentary on the Financial Services Investor Compensation Scheme and its role in returning money to the depositors in a failing bank. The special position of failing investment banks is also a feature of the book. Coverage includes analysis of the legislation adopted to address the particular issues that arose in the failure of Lehman Brothers and the resulting litigation, particularly that relating to the recovery of client assets. This work will be invaluable for regulatory, transactional and insolvency lawyers and other professionals advising banks on their powers and governance processes, in structuring and documenting transactions and in dealing with banks in the course of insolvency proceedings.
