They form, and have formed for centuries, an integral part of the world of corporate finance. Yet there are many complexities that need to be considered and understood, including the intricate juxtaposition of laws, regulations, local custom and precedents governing such transactions; the many forms security interests take, and the varying effect these have on enforcement by the creditor of their rights under such security; the impact of which market the loan or other credit was obtained in on the manner in which security is implemented; and the jurisdictional differences in the laws and regulations applicable to such transactions.
