About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to announce the upcoming 10th Specialty Finance Summit, taking place on September 6th in New York. The economy is still improving, but as competition and subsequent valuations reach new heights, lender protections are loosening, and skepticism on the longevity of the current credit cycle is starting to build. Regulatory uncertainty is also creating a volatile environment in both the core specialty finance asset classes as well as alternatives. Investors are closely watching rising interest rates, movement in the CFPB, new equipment financing regulations and the brand new risks brought on by ICOs. Industry experts will share their best hedging practices in this risky market, and discuss diversification strategies to new asset classes and growth markets. As the established industry leader, we brought together senior-level representatives from investors, lenders, specialty finance companies, BDCs and hedge funds to discuss the evolving market in a connection-driven environment for our tenth successful program.
