Panel- Institutional investor insights- allocator perspectives

The recent state of the public markets has meant that institutional investors’ overall asset allocation pie has shrunk. Despite this, private credit remains an attractive source of investment for LPs, amounting to over USD100 billion in pension fund investments. Indeed, a public market retreat has meant that pensions now have more flexibility to add more illiquid debt into their portfolios, and there seems to be no pause in activity for this asset class. Our panel of top LPs will discuss their private credit allocations, key considerations, and their outlook for the year ahead.

  • What continues to make private credit a compelling investment opportunity for LPs, especially given the current macroeconomic and geopolitical landscape? 
  • What are some of the investment trends investors are leaning towards in this climate, such as expanding into new geographic locations and focusing on non-cyclical businesses?
  • Despite market optimism, what are some of the ongoing challenges LPs face when investing in the space?
  • What are some unique opportunities LPs see on the horizon, and what are allocators’ plans for the year ahead?
