Opportunistic credit: distressed debt and special situations- a strategy for volatile times

The current dislocation of the economy and heightened global inflation could arguably be setting the scene for a distressed cycle, with current market conditions favouring opportunistic strategies as corporate borrowers face heavy debt loads and financial distress. Having an opportunistic credit strategy means that managers can build portfolios with good downside protection, and with more firms raising and closing funds targeting distressed debt and special situations, activity in this sector seems to be poised for an uptick. Our panel of fund managers will assess the opportunity set. 

  • How are continued market dislocations creating more distressed debt and special situation opportunities? What has changed compared to a year ago?
  • How can managers best take advantage of the upcoming distressed cycle?
  • What are some of the sectors and more unique strategies that opportunistic investors are looking at?  
  • What is the outlook for the year ahead?
