About The Conference

The landscape of Canadian business financing is rapidly evolving. Alternate capital sources are growing due to a combination of regulations in commercial lending and technology, and new players finding new ways of accessing financing versus traditional bank financing. However, concerns over systemic risks involved in alternative lending and specialty finance still exist calling for a regulatory framework to minimize these risks, ensure investor protection and safeguard markets. iGlobal Forum, in partnership with Canadian Lenders Association, were proud to present the inaugural event  Canadian Lenders Summit (October 26, Toronto, Canada) which explored these pertinent issues and more. It 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. The event was a key platform to network with Canadian and US specialty finance experts, who showcased how to thrive during periods of uncertainty and exploit new asset classes, geographies and partnerships to better meet market needs and provide attractive risk-adjusted returns.
