First published in the ARITA Australian Insolvency Journal Volume 27 No 4, December 2015

Description

Insolvent Investments identifies and explains significant problems that arise in the insolvency of collective investment vehicles in Australia, paying particular attention to matters concerning managed investment schemes regulated by the Corporations Act 2001.

 

In a series of twelve chapters, 25 eminently qualified lawyers identify issues that arise when investment vehicles experience financial trouble and explain how those issues impact on company officers, lenders, trade creditors, investors and insolvency practitioners.

 

The authors, drawn from the ranks of the bench, the bar and leading law firms, explain the often-uncertain law in a clear and logical fashion, providing readers with practical insight drawn from their recent experiences dealing with large and notorious collapsed investment schemes.

 

The book has particular relevance to collective investments, but also represents the most recent learning on important aspects of corporate insolvency law generally. It will be a valuable tool for anybody who provides advice in the investment, financial services and insolvency industries, and for all practitioners and students of insolvency law.
