“Structured credit remains a tremendously important part of the broader financial markets, supplying capital to consumers, small businesses and corporate America. Our market has shown great resilience in the last two years despite significant global disruptions. As an Investor-driven organization we will continue to foster value through important education and networking initiatives. I’m proud of our past accomplishments and very excited about the talented people gathered to continue our mission in the coming year,” said Joseph Lau, President of LordCap Green and the new Chairman of FIIN.
“Structured finance has gone through a consistent process of evolution in the last 30 years, adapting to the needs of the market. This has resulted in structured finance becoming more ingrained across our economy, from what is seen as commonplace but is remarkable – the 30-year mortgage as an example - to ever expanding areas such as renewable energy and ESG. The central focus has always been on ways to fund economic innovation.
I firmly believe that an open mind makes for a better investor. All of us at FIIN can help each other in encouraging this mindset of curiosity and innovation.” said Manish Kapoor, Managing Principal, West Wheelock Capital and Vice Chairman of FIIN.
