Private credit vehicles raised USD57 billion in the first half of 2020 according to research firm Preqin and with yield opportunities in structured credit and CLOs, as well as distressed credit, coming to the fore, the worlds of hedge fund and private equity investing are likely to converge; if indeed, they haven’t already.
As managers diversify their investment strategies, however, they need to remain vigilant in respect to ongoing risk management. And stay on top of any operational issues that arise, when expanding their asset class coverage.
In next month’s webinar, we will discuss the extent to which this convergence between hedge and private equity is happening and reveal how managers are thinking about their own diversification plans in this post-Covid marketplace.
The panel will be moderated by Hedgeweek and will feature both a leading credit hedge fund and a PE group, in addition to FIS Global, to dive into the details of this convergence story.
The webinar will cover a range of talking points including:
- How distressed credit, structured credit and private debt asset classes are appealing to both hedge funds and PE groups, as they search for yield
- Insights into how managers are currently thinking about diversification opportunities
- What are the operational risks involved when extending one’s asset class coverage?
- Could we see collaboration or joint ventures, between hedge and PE groups, to build distressed credit and CLO platforms, over the next few years?
