New York Partner Matthew D’Amico was quoted Jan. 21 by Bloomberg concerning the push by mutual fund firms to boost credit lines. This comes as some banks scale back lending to reduce the cost of complying with new regulations, which came into effect Jan. 1 and establish liquidity coverage ratios that impose the strictest requirements on the six largest banks in the United States. This provides an opportunity for smaller lenders to get business. “Clearly there are banks exiting this space because of capital requirements,” D’Amico said. “Some banks who don’t have the same capital requirements have come into the market and sought business with low bidding.” The article noted that D’Amico is the leader of Bryan Cave’s Fund Finance Team.
