LMA Members see Political Risk as Threat in Developing Markets

The London-based Loan Market Association (LMA) has canvassed the views of its members on the opportunities and challenges facing increasingly active developing market jurisdictions.

Focusing primarily on Africa and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), the survey aimed to determine where the key investment opportunities and challenges lie, which sectors are most likely to drive future growth and which factors will be most important in developing the loan market within these jurisdictions.

The survey was issued to coincide with the LMA’s second Developing Markets Conference held in London. The results, collected anonymously and reflecting the personal views of LMA members from 21 countries actively working in the loan market, were as follows:
