About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host the 11th Specialty Finance Summit on May 14, 2019 in New York. This was the summit in a long-standing series which we discuss the future of securitizations, regulations, and how investors can prepare in the event of a recession. Experts shared their strategies for separating high-yield investments from ABS that will soon turn to junk and what assets and structures will ride out a downturn. As new market participants and credit cycle uncertainty force investors into overpriced assets, unconventional strategies are helping to hedge that risk. We revealed top potential growth opportunities in high-value areas where benefits haven’t yet been realized from the tax reform and innovative securities structures to transform low-performing traditional investments. We brought together 150+ senior-level key leaders in the industry, representing specialty finance companies, marketplace lenders, senior lenders, asset managers, private equity firms, hedge funds, BDCs and SBICs to continue the discussion on shifting market trends and making uncertainty work for you.
