Filed Under: Industry Insights

Ed Cong, Partner, Marathon Asset Management, Asset-Based Finance, meets with Michael Toglia, Publisher of ABL Advisor, to discuss why Marathon Asset Management is pursing asset-based lending as a highly desirable and scalable product, and the growing role he sees for Marathon AM in both the direct and secondary markets as dislocation grows in the current economic cycle. Cong also discusses why he believes opportunities for non-bank lenders are going to be elevated for the foreseeable future and how credit risk transfer will continue to rise in the market.
