Private debt

A financial instrument with strong demand

Recourse to private debt is seeing significant growth; primarily due to the banks deleveraging and related financing difficulties. This is also due to the acceleration of banking disintermediation. It is also a non-dilutive type of financing, which is appreciated by companies’ shareholders and managers. For investors, the benefits of private debts are visibility, recurring income and protection in case of underlying difficulties in the company.
