Private Credit

Private credit will be the fastest-growing asset class over the next 10 years, opening new opportunities for visionary asset managers. We build preeminent leadership teams who can thrive in this competitive market.

Private credit is a leading asset class today, accounting for $1.2tn of assets under management globally. And it’s growing. That’s creating massive opportunities for a wide range of companies, from traditional private equity firms to insurance companies, pension funds, hedge funds, and other investment managers.

In this saturated market, visionary asset managers are creating niche offerings across direct lending, opportunistic credit, and distressed and special situations. They’re raising funds for BDCs and CLOs and launching credit-secondaries strategies. Keeping pace in this rapidly evolving industry will take a new breed of private credit leaders.

Working with clients of all sizes—from major asset managers, through mid-market credit firms, to newly-seeded asset managers—we build agile leadership teams, portfolio managers, originators, and underwriters.
