European Direct Lending Forum

room Live Virtual Event

Join the European Direct Lending event of the year!

Following a year of record fundraising in 2019, direct lending was riding high before the pandemic struck. The first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic provided the first big test for direct lending’s health as economies locked down to prevent the spread of the virus and deal flow dried up. However, in a year that brought untold challenges, there have been some unexpected developments for direct lenders with many experiencing their busiest period yet as they invest at a rapid pace seeking to capitalise on opportunities between periods of instability.

The 2021 European Direct Lending Forum will explore how funds have coped with stressed situations in their portfolios and the current terms in the market for funds looking to add leverage for the first time. We will also look to the US to explore lessons learned from a more mature private debt market as well as examining the latest reporting requirements affecting direct lenders.
