In an environment of rising rates and macroeconomic volatility, global senior secured loans can serve as a potential solution for advisors seeking alternative income strategies.

Join us for this in-depth discussion that will cover:

  • An overview of senior secured loans
  • Considerations for expanding into global loans
  • Potential benefits & risk considerations for global loans
