LoanStreet to Host Virtual Participations Forum

Loan Participations Forum to be Held on November 16, 17, 18 From Noon to 1:00 PM Eastern Time

NEW YORK, NY—November 2, 2020—LoanStreet Inc. will host a virtual Loan Participations Forum on November 16, 17 and 18 from Noon to 1:00 PM Eastern Time with each day consisting of two half-hour discussions featuring representatives from financial institutions of all sizes (from many billions to many millions) active in loan participations. Financial professionals, whether loan participation novices or experts, front-office or back-office, are welcome to attend all or any of the Forum sessions upon registration.

“This year has seen both a broadening and a deepening of the market for loan participations, with hundreds of new entrants alongside experienced institutions entering the market with increased frequency. The well-functioning loan participations market has been a reliable capital allocation channel despite significant volatility in primary lending and LoanStreet is proud to be part of enabling this resilience,” Ian Lampl, CEO of LoanStreet, said. “We believe all institutions should be equipped to assess whether undertaking loan participations can address their strategic needs as well as understand how the prerequisite operational steps have become easier by having the opportunity to hear first-hand insights from our Forum panelists.”

Panelists will be announced during the week of November 9. Click here to register to attend.
