Description:  As the election cycle comes to a close and we enter into an unknown regulatory environment, opportunities and challenges in the specialty finance industry are in for an overhaul. At iGlobal Forum's upcoming 7th Specialty Finance Summit taking place on January 11th and 12th in New York, we will cover all of the strategies in navigating new compliance requirements while continuing to find returns. Recent scandals have racked the sector, ushering in changes on all sides of the capital stack and pushing investors and lenders alike into new corners of the market. As the specialty finance sector is in the midst of an evolutionary process, blending new technologies with traditional strategies makes it increasingly important to stay on top of each of these new developments and network with new connections across the industry along the way. At this summit, you will network with 200+ senior level representatives from leading specialty finance companies, private equity firms, BDCs, SBICs, hedge funds, marketplace lenders, senior lenders, institutional investors and venture capital firms.
