The next phase for private credit markets

The changing landscape

The resilience and adaptability of the asset class during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has helped to cement private credit’s permanence in the minds of strategic asset allocators, with private markets proving their value to investors in balancing out the more variable and lower-returning public markets. As the focus shifts to recovery and rebuilding, the demand for private credit from investors continues. We believe the current – and evolving – market environment provides significant opportunities for private lenders to capitalise on this demand as deal pipelines build and investment opportunities proliferate across the spectrum. The COVID-19 pandemic was a crisis like no other. Despite an outlook clouded by widespread uncertainty and hopes of an economic recovery punctuated by setbacks, investors have actively sought better risk-reward opportunities across the private credit spectrum amid better entry points arising from the dislocations that COVID-19 has triggered as well as the trends it has both accelerated and created – from e-commerce and green and clean tech to new ways of working.
