Shin & Kim LLC received the “Structured Finance and Securitisation Deal of the Year” award at the IFLR Asia-Pacific Awards 2020 for advising PeopleFund on the P2P loan securitization.
IFLR highlighted that ▲ the deal made the Korean P2P company the first marketplace lender in Korea to receive foreign funding from global financial institutions in securitizations of personal credit and mortgage loans and ▲ the deal represented both the expertise and stability in the deal structure demanded by global financial institutions.
Shin & Kim’s Finance Group, Jong-Uk Lee, Yong Jin Park, Seong-Eun Cho, Min Young Ryu and Hee Young Park, participated in this case. Mr. Lee noted that “it is extremely unusual and impressive that a fintech-based instrument won the award against previous financial institutions instruments in the field of structured finance which deals with highly complex structures. With this award, Shin & Kim’s structure finance team has won a total of four ‘Structured Finance and Securitization Deal of the Year’ awards and once again proved that Shin & Kim is one of the market-leading law firms in the field of structured finance.
IFLR Asia-Pacific Awards is a renowned annual event where the best deals and law firms are selected and awarded by the International Financial Law Review (IFLR), a leading print resource on financial law published by Euromoney, the world’s leading media group. The result of this year’s awards was announced online on May 7, 2020.
