2nd Global Distressed Debt Investing Summit

Download Brochure

About The Conference

Opportunities in distressed investing have never been more attractive. Given the credit crisis and the fragile nature of the recovery, specific opportunity, particularly in the areas of real estate and corporate debt, await the keen investor. Potential to benefit from debt, turnaround and restructuring exists where companies, hedge funds, private equity firms, investment banks and institutional investors seek arbitrage. Conversely, failure to seek these opportunities, in light of forthcoming credit pressures, mounting debt and political uncertainty, may put these same institutions in risk to suffer revenue loss. iGlobal Forum's 2nd Global Distressed Debt Investing Summit will once again unite the leading Distressed Fund Managers, Private Equity Fund Managers, Hedge Fund Managers, M&A and Turnaround Advisors, Investment Bankers, Bankruptcy Advisors, Loan Originators, Debt Providers, and Rating Agencies. The event will provide the perfect platform to network with the leading dealmakers who will address the most pressing issues within the industry.

  • Strategies for new debt portfolio and types of financing available for future distressed M&A deals
  • Countries most likely impacted by the next wave of corporate debt
