Launched in 2013, Private Debt Investor helped define and shape this burgeoning private market asset class, and is now recognized as the voice of the industry.

We anticipated the growth potential of credit strategies within private capital when banks suddenly faced balance sheet and regulatory restrictions in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. This created a gap in the market for private lenders to populate. Credit-related fundraising has continued to gather momentum since.

Our deep market knowledge helps investors and asset managers anticipate trends and evaluate risks – like our ongoing scrutinisation of covenant-lite loan structures – which are proving hazardous to lenders. And through our products we also enable service providers to promote their brand and propositions to a the global market.
Deborah Zurkow speaking at the Women in Private Debt Forum
Our annual flagship event Private Debt Investor New York hosts over 400 delegates, including over 100 institutional investors. We also host events in London, Munich, Tokyo and Seoul where we bring agenda-setting institutional investors and fund managers together to discuss regional and outbound investment opportunities.          

“As a global investment manager, insight and research is central to everything we do. PDI helps ensure we stay on top of all the latest market trends, while their series of conferences and events provide a fantastic platform to network and share best practice”
