With global uncertainty increasing, triggered by the coronavirus threat, leaders of the financial services industry assembled at the SFVegas conference from 23-26 February to discuss what could stem the tide
“News was made, and positive, forward-looking plans were developed,” wrote Michael Bright, CEO of the Structured Finance Association (SFA) in his blog about the SFVegas conference. “With such a dramatic backdrop, it clearly makes sense to gather a few key takeaways, especially as Covid-19 begins to thrust the global financial markets into a tailspin of confusion and fear.”
Once a year those who are at the forefront of structured finance gather in Las Vegas for a conference that captures the mood of the industry and sets the tone for the year. Despite Bright’s foreboding, a check on how delegates at the event regarded the outlook showed that a tone of optimism exists across the industry even as the backdrop of Covid-19 (coronavirus) began to cast shadows. Had the event taken place just a couple of weeks later, the mood would likely have been much more pessimistic.
