Slaughter and May
This third edition of The Lending and Secured Finance Review comes at a particularly uncertain time for the financial markets. Although the debt markets have been relatively resilient in the face of a series of shocks, the economic outlook remains uncertain: concerns about Brexit, the slow pace of growth in the eurozone, exchange rate movements and the competitive threat posed by deregulation in the US to the UK and European financial markets are among multiple geopolitical risk factors on the horizon.
This edition of The Lending and Secured Finance Review contains contributions from leading practitioners in 23 different countries, and I would like to thank each of the contributors for taking the time to share their expertise on the developments in the corporate lending and secured finance markets in their respective jurisdictions and on the challenges and opportunities facing market participants. I would also like to thank our publishers without whom this Review would not have been possible.
