The CFA Society Sri Lanka will be hosting a webinar on Issues in Sovereign Domestic Debt (SDD) Restructuring on Wednesday, 24th August 2022 from 6 pm onwards SL time.
Dinesh Warusavitharana CFA, President of the CFA Society Sri Lanka said “When emerging and developing economies accumulate more sovereign domestic debt, restructuring SDD poses a different set of challenges compared to a restructuring of sovereign foreign debt. In such a context it is important to analyze the impact and how to restructure sovereign domestic debt while minimizing economic and financial disruptions”. Considering the far-reaching implications of restructuring SDD, to the financial sector, the CFA Society Sri Lanka has organized this virtual conversation for the benefit of all concerned.
During the session, the eminent speaker and panelists will educate the audience on issues in restructuring SDD. Also, the panel will draw on recent case studies and discuss a wide range of topics including: How does debt sustainability work? What is the likelihood of an SDD restructuring taking place in Sri Lanka? What are the likely paths for SDD restructuring? What will be the potential effects on financial stability and economic activity? What kind of policy response may be required? And what can investors do to prepare for this scenario?
Murtaza Jafferjee CFA, CEO, JB Securities, Chairman, Advocata Institute, and Past President, CFA Society Sri Lanka will deliver the keynote speech on the theme “Sovereign Domestic Debt (SDD) Restructuring” and related issues pertaining to Sri Lanka.
