About The Conference

iGlobal Forum was pleased to host our 4th Specialty Finance Summit - the leading deal-sourcing event for investors and issuers operating in the specialty finance space. At the Summit, we gained fresh insights into where you should be focusing your activities in 2015 and beyond. We had the opportunity to network with the leading decision-makers from specialty finance companies, marketplace lenders, BDCs, SBICs, private equity firms, hedge funds, wealth management firms, senior lenders and asset managers. Real-life deal spotlights revealed how specialty finance companies sourced, executed and exited deals and how they have strategically expanded over a multi-year period. A focused Structured Networking session enabled participants to connect, 1-to-1, with the market participants they most want to meet, and evaluate the potential for mutual business endeavors. Plus, three interactive workshops showed them how they can leverage FinTech to acquire new customers and underwrite loans more efficiently, broaden into emerging asset classes to increase and stabilize your yields, and take advantage of the opportunity for small business lending.
