iGlobal Forum’s Specialty Finance Summit is the go-to forum where senior-level representatives from specialty finance companies meet with private equity firms, hedge funds, wealth management firms, senior lenders and asset managers.
It is an invaluable deal-sourcing event, where investors meet potential targets and potential acquirers for their businesses, and issuers share best practice with their peers and generate new funding opportunities.
Activity in the specialty finance sector is growing, as rates remain low and banks stay away from high-risk consumers and SMEs. The securitization markets have opened up, and there is tremendous demand for the high-yield debt issued by specialty finance companies. Huge opportunities exist, both for alternative lenders and for investors with capital ready to be deployed into the sector.
