Calling all insolvency practitioners!

MIA in collaboration with the Insolvency Practitioners Association of Malaysia (IPAM) and The Malaysian Institute Of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) will hold the Malaysia Insolvency Conference 2019, with the theme of Restructuring & Insolvency: Looking to the Future.

Specially curated and developed to upskill insolvency practitioners, the 2019 conference will cover topics involving technology, cross-border developments, litigation developments, and strategies to maximise the value of companies in distress.

This is a must-attend to track how evolving technology and global developments – e.g. growing investments in technology assets and artificial intelligence assets, among others – impact the current and future practices of insolvency, such as liquidation and asset optimisation.

The conference will focus on the following:

Slowdown: What Areas of Malaysia’s Economy are Under Stress – Assesses the impact and risks of external headwinds such as the ongoing trade conflict and regional slowdown, as well as the consequences of the property slowdown and overhang of unsold properties on businesses, banks’ loan portfolios and the broader economy. As all detriments have a silver lining, the expert panellists will also identify key areas of opportunities unfolding and how practitioners can best strategise in response.

The Impact of Technology on Restructuring and Insolvency Practice – Advises insolvency practitioners on how best to embrace technology and dissects the pains and gains of technology adoption. In particular, the panellists will focus on the growing role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other relevant technologies in disrupting global bankruptcy and restructuring practices and the lessons available for Malaysia.

Round-Up of Legal Developments: Impact on Insolvency Practitioners – Discusses the legal cases and also potential legal reforms in Malaysia. The speakers will also cover the practical implications to insolvency practitioners, based on real-life cases, along with the key takeaways from the latest High Court and appellate decisions. Bonus: the speakers will walk delegates through a successful judicial management case study.

Cross-Border Asset Recovery Strategies for Insolvency Practitioners – Featuring the perspectives from an insolvency practitioner, forensic investigator, lawyer and litigation funder, this session explores the latest techniques for asset recovery and insolvency litigation. In particular, the discussion will cover strategies from a cross-border perspective, with assets and funds flowing across countries. Of particular interest is the actions by other jurisdictions to recognise and facilitate third-party funding for dispute resolution and also insolvency funding.

The Insolvency Conference 2019 will be held on 20 November 2019 (Wednesday), Connexion Conference & Event Centre @ The Vertical, Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur.
