(b) entrusting the administration or realization of all or part of the debtor's assets located in the Abu Dhabi Global Market to the foreign representative or another person designated by the Court, in order to protect and preserve the value of assets that, by their nature or because of other circumstances, are perishable, susceptible to devaluation or otherwise in jeopardy; or
