Private debt manager research

In Manager Research and Selection, we work with private debt investors to achieve their needs for income generation, portfolio diversification, interest rate risk management and more.

The global private debt landscape is evolving rapidly, with increasingly credible groups of funds focusing on Asia, secondaries and niche lending strategies such as Maritime, Aircraft or Equipment Leasing. Meanwhile, managers in more ‘conventional’ private debt segments are adjusting strategies/exposures and developing new approaches to ESG integration.

Read more about ESG in Manager Research.

Open, full-market manager searches enable up-to-date analysis and broad visibility on the manager universe, including newer/emerging managers. Full transparency through the process also enables a high degree of ‘knowledge transfer’ while maximising investor control.

For infrastructure debt and real estate debt, Private Debt researchers work closely with Real Asset specialists in order to provide comprehensive analysis. The firm’s Operational Due Diligence unit is also available to support implementation.

Optimising private credit portfolios

In Portfolio Design and Strategic Asset Allocation, private debt researchers work closely with the bfinance Portfolio Solutions team to ensure that ‘top-down’ analysis is enhanced by appropriate ‘bottom-up’ insight on current private credit investment strategies. This helps to ensure that our strategists develop solutions that will be effective and efficient to implement in practice.

Private debt researchers also provide targeted support for Fee Reviews, with new insights on industry pricing and day-to-day experience negotiating fees for and alongside our clients.

The ESG Advisory group works closely with all asset class specialists, to ensure that analysis and advisory support leverages up-to-date asset manager data on issues such as climate, diversity and social impact.
