In Asia, if a repayment is secured by a charge against other assets of the company, the document is called a debenture. Hence, the debenture holders of the current debenture would be called secured creditors. A debenture normally provides that a debenture holder may appoint a receiver to take charge over the secured property of the debtor company, at any time after the principal money secured by the debenture becomes payable or upon occurrence of an event of default as specified in the debenture.
