mallowstreet University Digital Roundtable: Making Private Credit Accessible to Smaller Pension Schemes
For small and medium sized pension schemes, accessing private credit and its consistent income streams and potential for higher yields can be difficult. However, we at Schroders believe private credit is no longer the preserve of just large schemes. In this Digital Roundtable, Jane Turner and Jeremy Knox will examine the market dynamics that are making private credit an attractive opportunity and deliver their thoughts on how to access a diversified mix of private credit assets that all schemes can take advantage of either as a standalone allocation or in a Cashflow Driven Investment strategy.
This morning session is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision makers.
