The Direct Lending Forum returns!

Debtwire’s Direct Lending Forum attracts an audience of direct lenders, LPs and GPs, to discuss the latest market sentiment in fundraising and direct lending against the backdrop of a tricky fundraising environment and a squeeze on businesses due to high energy prices and supply chain issues. Will heavy leverage loads and opportunistic lending set the tone for the next 12 months of private credit?

The forum holds an excellent opportunity to take part in valuable conversations and forge industry connections with direct lending specialists from across Europe, you don’t want to miss this!

Last year we launched our inaugural Direct Lending Awards which will return this year with even more categories. Debtwire’s Direct Lending Awards recognise the best performing direct lending funds in Europe, stay tuned for more details!
