This seminar focuses on secured lending to corporate debtors. English law has deployed a plethora of ‘true’ consensual security interest: mortgage (legal and equitable), charge (fixed and floating), pledge, the contractual lien. What do we mean by ‘security’? It examines the registration regime under the Companies Ordinance. It also touches on quasi-security, with a particular focus on retention of title clauses. This seminar outlines the rule against reflective loss. The Supreme Court has fundamentally reconceived the rule against reflective loss in Carlos Sevilleja Garcia v Marex Financial Limited  UKSC 31 by carefully confining the rule to company shareholders, lifting the bars to creditors.
