Creditflux CLO Symposium

Connecting the Global CLO Community: Fundraise, Originate and Deploy

The Landmark, London

15 May

Panel: LPs’ views on CLOs – family offices have entered the chat

Challenging market dynamics and limited loan volumes have led LPs to diversify investment pools and to enter competitive alternatives with attractive yields. In the ‘golden era’ of private credit, new structured credit funds are experiencing tough fundraising conditions, whilst established names are benefiting from long-standing relationships with LPs. However, emerging trends including the entrance of more family offices to the market and the increase of retail friendly products could impact future dynamics. This panel will discuss:

  • What is the current fundraising climate? What alternative sources of capital are there for new CLO funds?
  • What are LPs looking for in a fund manager?
  • Are CLO ETFs and other high liquidity structures useful for LPs investors or a distraction from longer term investments? Are ESG considerations still an important factor when LPs consider allocations to CLO funds?
