Ms Zhang is a partner in Davis Polk’s corporate department, practicing in the derivatives and structured products group. She regularly represents financial institutions on securities offerings of structured products linked to equities, commodities, currencies, rates and combinations of these assets. She has extensive experience in the development of new financial products, including exchange traded notes and proprietary indices for retail and institutional investors. She also advises financial institutions, corporations and investment funds in structuring, negotiating and documenting equity derivatives transactions as well as offerings of convertible and exchangeable securities.
Despite the significant growth of the global structured products market in recent years and the continuing evolution of the global regulatory framework, very few books on legal and regulatory issues related to structured products are available. Our first edition last year was meant to cover that gap and we hope that this second edition will continue to further the knowledge base of legal practitioners and other structured products market participants.
