Opus Connect is looking forward to welcoming you to Part II of our Debt Summit featuring three consecutive afternoon panels followed by an evening cocktail reception. These panels will feature industry leading private lenders and other M&A professionals, and will focus on current trends impacting the lending landscape. This exclusive IN PERSON event and will be hosted at 730 Third Avenue in New York City. 

**All guests must pre-register and present a valid photo ID and proof of COVID vaccination upon entry. Registration includes attendance to afternoon panels & reception.

Panel Topics:

  1. Assessing Risk in a Volatile Market
  2. Are Global Supply Chain Issues and Labor Shortages Easing?
  3. Changes in Consumer Behavior: Trend Shifts, E-commerce, and WFH. 


Panel 1: Assessing Risk in a Volatile Market

The rising cost of capital, inflation, and fluctuating asset values create a market not seen for 50 years. Hand-in-hand, the increased cost of capital coupled with inflation places pressure on margins and volume – both internally within your organization and externally to our clients. And, determining asset values may seem like “catching a falling knife”. Please, join a discussion on the impacts on current and future investments and practices your peers use to address these issues.

Moderator: David Ellis, Founder & Co-President at GemCap

Sasha Grutman, Partner at Middlemarch Partners
Tony Hokayem, Managing Director at Colbeck Capital Management
Doug Bunim, Managing Director at OFS Capital Management 
Edward Levy, Founder and Managing Partner at Velocity Structured Solutions

Panel 2: Are Global Supply Chain Issues and Labor Shortages Easing?

Initially economists thought that the global supply-chain issues were temporary due to the inability of the supply side to catch up with the increased demand unleashed by the end of the pandemic lockdowns. But these issues weren’t temporary and have persisted well beyond the end of the pandemic lockdown with port congestion, container shortages, product delivery delays and chip shortages. At the same time, we are hearing that companies are facing unprecedented challenges trying to find enough workers to fill open jobs. Are we seeing these issues improving or continuing until the end of 2022 and into 2023?

Join our panel of distinguished credit funds as we hear their views on the supply chain and labor issues and the impact on their portfolio companies.

Kevin Grossman, Vice President at Decathlon Capital Partners
Raffi Azadian, Founder & CEO at Change Capital
Adam Goodfriend, Managing Director at Metropolitan Partners Group

Panel 3: Changes in Consumer Behavior: Trend Shifts, E-commerce, and WFH. 
Let’s explore how the pandemic has impacted our daily lives. We will take a micro-level peek into how our changing behaviors affect the larger scale shifts we're seeing in the lending industry and larger global economy.
