Banco Finansur’s restructuring

BSCP Abogados and Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal advised on the transaction

Argentina’s central bank ordered the restructuring of Banco Finansur SA and accepted an offer from Banco de Galicia y Buenos Aires SA to acquire the assets and assume privileged liabilities of the troubled local lender, though the regulator did not disclose the amount of assets and liabilities involved in the transaction.

The regulator estimates the restructuring process will entail a payment of 150 million Argentine pesos from the country’s deposit insurance fund.
