GFMI to Host the 2nd Annual Leveraged Lending in the Shifting Regulatory Environment Conference in NYC

Altogether, Leveraged Lending Is as Important and Intricate Today Than It Has Been Over the Last Ten Years

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 29, 2016) - GFMI will host the 2nd Annual Leveraged lending in the Shifting Regulatory Environment Conference on June 22-24, 2016 in New York City. This year's meeting is focused on creating a business structure for banks to remain compliant and maintain business in the current volatile environment.

A number of new challenges and issues affecting leveraged finance have recently emerged. The continued pressure of the Interagency Guidance means institutions are concerned of falling foul of the regulators. This GFMI conference will enable heads of leveraged finance, leveraged underwriting and credit risk to fully understand the guidance and implement it into business as usual. Through case study presentations, institutions will improve their underwriting standards, optimize their loan refinancing strategies and strengthen their risk management practices to remain profitable and competitive in an increasingly challenging market.

Learn from key practical case studies:

  • Evaluate the latest developments in complying with the Interagency Guidance
  • Understand the evolving underwriting standards and best practices to remain compliant with the Guidance
  • Implement a strong reporting structure for leveraged lending
  • Assess the viability of lending to the energy market
  • Debate the impact of interest rate rises on leveraged loans
