"Sea of Liquidity" article analyses the Iberian banking e finance market

Pedro Cassiano Santos, partner responsible for the Banking & Finance practice, quoted in the article entitled "Sea of Liquidity" in the Banking & Finance Annual Report by Iberian Lawyer.

This article on investments on funds in the Iberian market shows that Iberian lawyers do not share the same opinion. In the Portuguese case, although there is a significant increase on fund-based financing, the investment is mostly directed to banking credits on distressed assets, as a way to improve the Portuguese economy. Pedro Cassiano Santos adds that "the CRR (Capital Requirements Regulation) and CRD IV (Capital Requirements Directive) are shaping the type of instruments bank will be using in their efforts to boost their capital".
