Rotating Investment Masterclass I: Private Credit as an Alternative Source of Income | Barry Fricke, Global Head of Private Credit | Aberdeen Standard Investments
The private credit landscape is growing rapidly. This presents investors with an increasing range of opportunities for income but brings with it significant challenges around prioritisation and governance. Which areas offer a sufficient illiquidity premium, genuine diversification, and are adequately developed for institutional investment? We will look at current market characteristics across sectors and geographies, and discuss the pros and cons of investing in private credit using a multi-sector approach.
Rotating Investment Masterclass II: Finding Value in the Private Debt Markets | Nicole Downer, Managing Partner & Head of Investor Relations and Malek Ghali, Director | MV Credit (Natixis Investment Managers)
Nicole Downer and Malek Ghali from MV Credit (part of the Natixis Group) will be taking a look at how UK pension schemes can find value in the European Private Debt markets. They will define the current investment landscape and take a look at recent trends and developments, as well as some of the challenges faced.
