Managing through cycles in the direct lending space
Private debt as an asset class has seen unprecedented growth over the past decade, but macro headwinds are creating challenges for direct lenders, and rising interest rates – while potentially beneficial to returns – are likely to further increase financial pressure on borrowers. So what can the experience of working through previous downturns tell us about how to handle the current cycle? Can we expect a spike in default rates? And, looking forward, where is the US private debt market headed in 2024 and beyond?
In this episode – sponsored by TPG Angelo Gordon’s middle-market direct lending business, Twin Brook Capital Partners – we explore some of the key factors that will affect lenders’ abilities to manage portfolios in the shifting sands of the current market environment, as well as what the key differentiators are likely to be for fund managers in the years to come.
Listen as Andy Thomson, senior editor of Private Debt Investor, speaks with Drew Guyette, co-chief credit officer and senior partner at TPG Twin Brook, and Kim Trick, co-chief credit officer, head of underwriting and partner in the business.
