“Spotlight on Buy-Side Leverage,” Law360

In this article, Jenner & Block Partner Timothy A. Karpoff explores the increasing costs of leverage for buy-side investors.  Tim explains that a combination of regulatory reforms and changes in monetary policy should make leverage more expensive than it has been in the past.  He offers insight on how buy-side participants should consider how the rising cost affects their investment strategies and opportunities that could come from forced de-leveraging.
