Panel: Innovations in financing structures – German private credit outlook

The private credit and financing market in Germany is poised for innovation and transformation in 2024, with a notable resurgence in private debt witnessed in the third quarter of 2023 (a 71% increase in deal count during 2Q23 compared to 3Q23 according to Debtwire), indicating a robust and adaptable financial landscape. Sustainability considerations, underscored by the integration of ESG principles into deals, are expected to gain prominence, reflecting a growing commitment to responsible financing practices. As the German private credit market navigates economic shifts, regulatory developments, and global trends, the outlook for 2024 presents a landscape marked by resilience, adaptability, and a commitment to shaping the future of financing in innovative ways. This panel will discuss: 

  • What has caused the resurgence in private credit witnessed in 2023? How do these levels compare to 2022 and 2021? 
  • Is sustainability becoming a key driver of investment decisions in financing practices? 
  • How are economic shifts in the German economy influencing the private credit market and financing structures? 
  • We’ve witnessed consolidation in the private credit manager space with DBAG’s acquisition of ELF Capital, will we see more consolidation in 2024?
