More than 6,000 Securitization Professionals to Gather in Las Vegas Next Week

This coming weekend, thousands of industry professionals will begin to gather for next week’s SFIG Vegas 2017 conference at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas.  Co-hosted by the Structured Finance Industry Group (“SFIG”) and Information Management Network (“IMN”), this year’s event is expected to acknowledge the progression to mainstream securitization for several newer asset classes including marketplace lending and solar energy.  Another topic that will certainly be front and center, at least for US market participants, will be the potential impact of changes to the US regulatory regimen, resulting from the recent national elections.
