I was able to watch a good number of the sessions at the Fund Finance Association’s Virtual Conference this week and enjoyed the event. Congrats and thanks to Michelle Bolingbroke, the event planning team at Sequence, and the regional chairs and committees on a job well done.

It’s however safe to say that a few predominate themes surfaced throughout the discussions.

Although commercial banks have long taken the lead in fund finance lending, alternative lenders have gradually taken on a larger role in the market. This trend appears to have accelerated over the last year, partly driven by a reduction in new lending by banks and the resulting search by borrowers for new sources of capital.
