Mr. Colm Kelly
MUFG Union Bank N.A


Colm Kelly is a member of Standard and Poor's Corporate Loan Recovery team, specializing in the provision of issue-level and recovery ratings for non-investment grade credits. Standard & Poor's recovery methodology focuses on estimating the percentage of recovery that debt investors would receive at the end of a formal bankruptcy proceeding or an informal out-of-court restructuring. Recovery ratings incorporate fundamental deal-specific, scenario-driven, forward-looking analysis. They consider the impact of key structural features, intercreditor dynamics, the nature of insolvency regimes, multijurisdictional issues, and potential changes in recovery valuation after a simulated default. Prior to joining Standard and Poor's in 2013, Mr. Kelly spent eight years as a financial advisor primarily with the corporate restructuring practices of Deloitte and BDO in New York. In the course of his advisory career, he assisted both management teams and lenders of underperforming companies in their efforts to develop solutions to distressed situations. Previously he spent six years with Fortis Bank US, where he had responsibility for the workout and recovery of the distressed energy and telecom project finance portfolios. Mr. Kelly holds an MBA from Columbia University, a MA in Economics and Finance from the National University of Ireland, and a BA in Economics from Trinity College, Dublin.
