Private credit is an all-weather strategy that has the potential to generate more attractive risk-adjusted returns relative to traditional fixed income markets.

Why Private Credit?

The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of senior secured loans, among other private credit opportunities.

Senior secured loans provide a natural and effective hedge against inflation and rising interest rates due to the floating-rate coupon. Recent market volatility has led to spread widening, providing a compelling environment to deploy capital into private credit.

Strong tailwinds exist for private credit due to the significant amount of "dry powder" that remains within private equity funds, providing for a sustained private credit opportunity environment for the foreseeable future.

"The demand for private credit continues to grow, as there has been decreased participation by banks in the leveraged loan market. We believe this growing, $1 trillion asset class represents a significant opportunity for our investors."

What is Private Credit?

The Fund's strategy is focused on direct lending—the predominant asset class in the private credit universe. Direct lending includes any debt held by—or extended to—privately held companies, and it most commonly involves non-bank institutions making loans to private companies. The private company must pay back the full sum of the loan, plus interest, to the lending institution. Direct loans are senior in the capital stack, secured by collateral, and offer floating interest rates.

Principle + Interest

The borrower must pay back the full loan principle, with interest, in accordance with deal terms. Direct lending is attractive to many investors due to its premium yields above public fixed income.2
