Terence Mark is a managing director in BRG’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) Economics & Damages practice and is based in the firm’s Tokyo office.

He has nearly twenty years of experience in Asia as part of a more than forty-year career that also has included roles in banking, finance, and restructuring in New York, Chicago, and London.

Mr. Mark has specific experience and expertise in credit risk, securities, loans, derivatives, structured products, portfolio management, and the restructuring of non- or underperforming assets. He has managed through multiple credit cycles and has hands-on knowledge of corporate and structured credit, aviation finance, asset-backed securities, real estate, and film finance.

Mr. Mark leverages this unique combination of market experience and product expertise to provide expert services to law firms and their clients related to finance, banking, valuations, restructuring, and damages.

As a portfolio manager at a global manager of collateralized debt obligations and structured investment vehicles in New York, Mr. Mark was one of five managers responsible for allocation and management of US$ 36 billion of corporate and structured finance assets and liabilities across credit structures including CDO/CLOs, conduits, and SIVs. His experience managing and participating in the ultimate wind-down of these structures gives him insight to legal, regulatory, and rating agency issues under complex circumstances.

In Tokyo, Mr. Mark has held senior positions with commercial and investment banks. In the 2000s, he served as general manager, Japan country head, and head of portfolio management APAC at a commercial bank. He subsequently was engaged by a government agency tasked with managing an orderly wind-down and liquidation of various banking businesses across Asia, which was completed in 2017. Subsequently, he was mandated by the same agency to help achieve the same goal with a US-based portfolio consisting mainly of a motion-picture assets, real estate NPLs, and complex litigation.

Mr. Mark spent much of his career building banking businesses in the US and Asia, and a near equal portion in the highly specialized position of managing orderly wind-downs of regulated businesses with large balance sheets, in difficult regulatory environments, dealing with complex litigation, corporate governance, and sensitive local human resources issues. He has provided expert witness testimony and been deposed on multiple occasions.
