Event Overview


"Annual opportunity to network and catch up with loan markets players"

Hector Garcia-Armeno, Santander

Developing strategies for thriving in a challenging market


Syndicated loans are facing pressures from multiple directions; slow economic growth keeps the deal flow stilted, increased competition is compressing spreads ever further and the capital requirements under Basel III are inducing a structural shift in the market.

However the uniquely adaptable and highly innovative loans market is not about to crumple under such challenges. Banks and institutional investors alike are redefining the market with creative financing solutions and business model revisions, pushing the industry on the road of gradual change.

Join the discussion in March at this one-day strategic conference and shape the future of the industry in these turbulent times.

  • From loans to debt capital markets: exploring holistic solutions to corporate financing needs
  • The bane of the loan market: strategies for coping with low deal flow and excess liquidity
  • Moving from the originate-to-distribute model to collaborative loan structuring
  • The impact of competition from direct lenders in the sponsor-driven mid-market
