Latin American restructuring and bankruptcy data now available on Debtwire

09 December 2020 - 12:00 am

Debtwire, the leading provider of expert news, data and analysis on global leveraged credit, today announced the launch of Latin American restructuring and bankruptcy data on its Restructuring Data platform. In conjunction, Debtwire published its inaugural Latin America Restructuring Insights Report, which analyzes the Latin American restructuring landscape, looking at newly initiated restructuring and bankruptcy situations across the region


For 15 years, Debtwire has provided the investor and advisor communities with market-moving news, key data and in-depth research across the lifecycle of a credit. The Latin American expansion matches Debtwire’s vast footprint, covering restructuring situations of international bond issuers and other important cases involving local currency debt.


The Restructuring Data platform already includes a significant number of Latin American situations, whose debtors used US court proceedings to implement their corporate restructurings. Now the most important information from significant Latin American restructuring situations and bankruptcy and insolvency processes will be in one place.


Each situation is examined by Debtwire’s legal analyst team and tagged with legal issues, involved creditors, key players and transactions – supplementing publicly available information with exclusive insight. Complemented by our editorial coverage, Debtwire doesn’t just track the first day, but follows each restructuring situation all day, every day. Users can filter information across hundreds of metrics, generate real-time versions of crucial in-depth reports and generate custom searches and league tables.


“We are thrilled to expand the Restructuring Database with Latin American data,” said Joshua Friedman, Global Head of Restructuring Data, Debtwire. “For years, researching Latin American restructuring situations and bankruptcy cases has meant long hours digging through far-flung sources of public information or locating even harder to find private information. Debtwire’s Restructuring Data platform has changed that. It is designed around ease of use and tailored to each user’s needs – from quick grab-and-go data searches to a bird’s eye view of the market.”


The database includes key information, such as:

  • Corporate and restructuring information
  • Involved creditors and investors
  • Advisory mandates and relationships
  • Key documents
  • Capital structures
As the market is increasingly dependent on data and analytics to fuel business decisions, the Latin American expansion on Restructuring Data is just one of the many enhancements to Debtwire’s data offering.
