January 19, 2015

Investor interest in the European loan markets and increased need for portfolio diversification has necessitated hedge funds to focus on a wider range of European loan markets whilst at the same time managing risk. Recently, hedge funds have begun to explore new investment opportunities in Italy. Italy’s 2014 regulatory changes and its proposed changes in 2015 are intended to facilitate direct investment in Italy by non-Italian lenders to enable such lenders to have greater efficiency and transparency than ever before.
