The private credit market in Asia is taking off. Despite the challenges of 2020, the global private credit market is set to grow to US$1 trillion. As the asset class continues to develop in Asia, it will play a crucial role in the region’s economic rebound from COVID-19, and there continues to be significant appetite from global and regional managers who have ramped up fundraising across a range of private credit strategies as they look for portfolio diversification and stability in this time of crisis.
Against such a backdrop, private credit managers and LPs alike will have to navigate the unique challenges of investing in a diverse and fragmented region.
Through this one-day virtual experience, AVCJ hopes to provide a setting to tell the compelling growth story of the global private credit market, as well as to foster an educational platform for global and regional investors to share key trends, best practices, and help capture opportunities in this asset class.
Topics will include:
What is the global outlook and industry trends of private credit from the perspective of GPs in the established markets of US/Europe?
How has the asset class in Asia developed over the past year, and how will COVID-19 impact its outlook?
What are the unique opportunities and challenges for private credit managers in Asia, and how can investors best access the fragmented markets in the region?
Which private credit strategies are gaining traction in Asia, such as distressed debt and special situations?
How has COVID-19 impacted fundraising and due diligence, and how much of an impact will ESG have in the private credit space?
What are the key considerations taken by LPs when making allocations into the asset class regionally?
