IMN’s 2nd Annual Investors Conference on Marketplace Lending

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Morgan Lewis recently sponsored the 2nd Annual Investors Conference on Marketplace Lending presented by the Information Management Network (IMN). Structured Transactions partner Philip Russell was a panelist on the “Marketplace Lending – The Year in Review and the Year Ahead: Marketplace Leaders Speak Out” session.

Over the course of the one-day program, the conference dove deeper into the nuances of the marketplace lending sector:

  • What are the various assets being funded, and which are ripe for securitization?
  • How are credit decisions being made? What safeguards are being built into the ABS structures?
  • How will this market fare in the event of an economic downturn? How will the securities backed by these assets fare?
  • What are the regulatory risks facing this sector, and how might that impact investors? Platforms?
  • Has the face of lending changed forever? How will this impact the traditional bank lender?
