This week, the LSTA hosted its Tokyo and Hong Kong loan investor conferences, welcoming more than 400 and 250 attendees, respectively. While the LSTA is a U.S. organization, we focused on global trends. Case in point: The kick off panel compared and contrasted the U.S. and Europe. The two geographies see many similar pressures. On the fundamental side, both regions enjoy sub-2% default rates. On the technical side, supply – as measured by the size of the U.S. and European loan indexes – has been relatively flat for several years.
