LSTA Conference: The World Today, Tomorrow and Five Years Hence

August 10, 2017 - On October 24th in NYC, the LSTA is hosting some 1,200 loan market participants at its 22nd Annual Loan Conference. This year, we are focused on risks and opportunities in the world (and loan market) today, tomorrow and five years hence. Considering the current standoff with North Korea (among other issues), geopolitical risk is (or should be) top of everyone’s minds. Good thing, then, that our keynote speaker is James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence from 2010 to 2017 and a retired Air Force Lieutenant General who served two tours in Southeast Asia.  Clearly, Director Clapper is an accomplished thinker on geopolitical threats.  

But we are thinking beyond geopolitical risks. In addition to Director Clapper, the LSTA Conference also will have a broad-ranging futurist session devoted to how the world has and will change in the fields of artificial intelligence and big data – and the long-term implications for the economy and society.  

While we will discuss big, global ideas, of course we also will focus on today and tomorrow in the loan market. On that front, we will hear from senior market participants from BAML, Goldman, Guggenheim, Invesco, JP Morgan, Barclays, Marathon, Wells Fargo, Fidelity, CIFC, PNC, Citi, Golub, Churchill, Newstar, Reef Road, Canyon Capital, WilmerHale, Reed Smith, Finastra, R3 and Markit on issues ranging from Primary and Secondary Loan Market Trends, Buyside Perspectives, Middle Market and Direct Lending, Settlement, Blockchain and Innovative Technology, and the new views on MNPI. (As a bonus, we are offering two ethics CLEs for our legal friends.)  

More information and registration is available here. We hope you join us and 1,200 of your closest loan market friends on October 24th in NYC!
