Interest in technology designed to improve the efficiency, transparency and liquidity of the syndicated loan market is at an all-time high. Looking to a product that has historically been associated with manual processes, the introduction of FinTech solutions, ranging from blockchain to machine learning to smart contracts, could be revolutionary.
The LMA's inaugural FinTech Conference discussed how this could happen, what could be achieved, why it is necessary and, most importantly, when such changes are likely to be adopted.
The event was attended by over 380 industry professionals and featured presentations and panel discussions from over 30 market experts.
The panels and presentations covered a wide range of subject headings, including the role of the LMA in driving change, the legal, regulatory and compliance considerations associated with FinTech in the specific context of syndicated lending, the impact of technology on the role of the arranger, how increased technological efficiencies are likely to affect the roles of lawyers in banking transactions, the use of FinTech in secondary trading and back office functions, as well as the use of artificial intelligence ("AI") in data analysis, extraction and reporting.
