The success of the alternative lending sector has continued apace, and we have seen increasing appetite among investors. From a handful of players a decade ago today we are presented with a plethora of funds of different sizes and strategies. Competition has heated up as alternative lenders find themselves competing increasingly with each other and with the traditional lending banks. This forum will bring together key fund managers, investors and advisers to assess the state of the market and the outlook for the future.
