Developing Markets

Developing markets offer great opportunities as global dynamics shift, demand for their resources increases and new technologies evolve. At the LMA, we seek to bring about increased efficiencies and standardisation in developing markets, whilst educating our members about the opportunities and challenges they may face when operating in these regions.

Appointment of New LMA CEO

Scott McMunn has been appointed CEO of the Loan Market Association (“LMA”). The LMA's key objective is to improve liquidity, efficiency and transparency in the loan markets across EMEA for its 845+ members. Scott started his new role on 1 September 2023.

Charlotte Conlan, Chair of the LMA Board said, “We are delighted to welcome Scott as the new Chief Executive of the LMA.  He brings with him tangible experience and knowledge of the loan market and has strong strategic capabilities and operational effectiveness to drive the LMA forward. The Board looks forward to working with Scott and helping the LMA continue to deliver outstanding service to its members.”


LMA Syndicated Loans Conference 2023

On 26 September, we will be holding our 15th annual conference for LMA members in London.

The conference will be hybrid, combining the benefits of an onsite physical event, with all the networking opportunities this delivers, with that of a virtual event and the ability to reach a much larger global audience. The conference will be held in London at the QEII Conference Centre, but also streamed live at the same time to our members around the world who are not able to travel.

Our annual conference provides the perfect opportunity to discuss the challenges impacting the loans market and identify, together, possible solutions and the best way to move forward.  This conference is the flagship event for the syndicated loan market in EMEA, and it is also the largest by far specifically for this industry. The networking opportunities are therefore unrivalled. Delegate places will be in high demand so register now to secure your place.
