This is the first Thai Baht-denominated deal Ashurst has advised CGIF on as they promote Asian local currency capital markets by credit wrapping Asian issuers. Ashurst drafted the Guarantee Agreement, Guarantee Fee Letter, and Reimbursement and Indemnity Agreement as Guarantor counsel.

ASEAN+3 (China, Japan, Korea) and Asian Development Bank created CGIF, a multilateral facility (“ADB”). The ADB trust fund provides credit enhancements, mostly in local currencies, to creditworthy ASEAN+3 bond issuers. Through prudent financial policies, CGIF has national AAA credit ratings in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

“We are proud and honored to continue our long standing relationship with CGIF having built on a relationship of trust and confidence over a number of years.” said lead partner Jini Lee.

Jini Lee led the deal with Janet Ouyang, Eleanor Zhao, and Claire Chen.
