Non-Performing Corporate Loan Toolkit for Banks

22 Apr 2022 Special Update

Singapore’s restructuring and insolvency regime offers a wide variety of tools for dealing with corporate non-performing loans and loan defaults. To avoid the “man-with-a-hammer” syndrome, it is important to understand the nuances of these tools and how they can be suitably deployed in different scenarios. The sophistication of the tools has greatly increased with legislative enhancements made in recent years. This allows borrowers and lenders alike to formulate bespoke strategies that best suit each particular situation.

This note summarises the key features of the restructuring and insolvency options in Singapore, and sets out a decision-making matrix to guide banks and other lending institutions in selecting which options may be preferred under various conditions.
