Private credit has emerged as one of the fastest growing asset classes in the institutional investment space. With the potential to offer an illiquidity premium compared to publicly traded fixed income asset classes, as well as its historically lower average recovery rates than equivalent rated public corporate bonds, and historically low correlation to more traditional asset classes, this asset class offers strong diversification benefits. The panel will explore what areas of private credit are being utilised in portfolios and how this is enhancing risk/return investment profiles.
