2nd Specialty Finance Summit

Event : 2nd Specialty Finance Summit

Tue, 09/09/2014  
Conducted by : iGlobal Forum
Contact : Anna Ivanova

A deal-sourcing event, where investors meet potential targets and potential acquirers for their businesses and issuers share best practices with their peers to generate new funding opportunities. Activity in the specialty finance sector continues to grow, and BDCs in particular are raising substantial amounts of capital. With the rise of peer-to-peer lending, money is pouring into unsecured consumer finance space, and new technologies and strategies are being developed to facilitate this deadflow. Increased competition is compressing yields, and encouraging many investors to look at off-the-run asset classes. Regulatory uncertainty is keeping cost of funds high and market participation on edge.

The summit will provide you with opportunity to meet and network with over 150 leading specialty finance companies, private equity firms, hedge funds, wealth management firms, senior lenders and asset managers.
