Mergermarket Private Credit Forum Europe

The must-attend event for Europe's Private Credit community!

The Dorchester, London

Mergermarket’s premier Private Credit gathering in Europe!

A crucial event for European private credit professionals, the Private Credit Forum holds an excellent opportunity to take part in valuable conversations and forge industry connections with private credit specialists from across Europe.

Previously the Direct Lending Forum, this event attracts an audience of private creditors, LPs and GPs, to discuss the latest market sentiment 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?

Mergermarket’s industry-leading M&A predictive intelligence offers exclusive access to valuable insights and perspectives from industry leaders and influencers, giving you a distinct advantage that you won't find anywhere else.

Our 3rd annual Private Credit Awards will return this year with even more categories. The awards recognise the best performing private credit funds in Europe, stay tuned for more details!
