About The Conference

 iGlobal Forum was pleased to present the 8th Specialty Finance Summit  in New York on September 13th & 14th, 2017! The specialty finance industry has been growing rapidly to meet the demands of small businesses and consumers. Many sectors of the specialty finance industry such as securitization and the auto finance industry are undergoing periods of uncertainty that will affect both lenders and investors. The industry has been further impacted by deregulation expectation, rising rates and regulatory changes by the Trump administration. Coupled with CFPB’s power over marketplace lending and advancements in Fintech, the industry has a critical need to know how to best respond to these developments. iGlobal Forum’s 8th Specialty Finance Summit brought together thought leaders from all sides of the specialty finance industry, discussing the major shifts in geopolitical, economic and technological factors affecting investment opportunities today. It showed how you can thrive during periods of uncertainty and exploit new asset classes, geographies and partnerships to better meet market needs and provide attractive risk-adjusted returns.
