Assisting businesses to finance their growth ambitions
Since the financial crisis, many of the traditional funding channels have significantly reduced the lending capacity due to reduced risk appetite, regulatory capital constraints and balance sheet restructuring. This has created a notable change in European debt markets, where the funding provided by institutions rather than traditional banks has become a reliable alternative source of funding for business.
The increase in private debt, often referred as “alternative finance” or “direct lending”, has transformed how small and medium sized businesses finance their growth. SME and mid-cap businesses are generally unaware of the private debt market offering, where the sheer range of providers and instruments is often confusing and challenging.
The principal hurdle facing the Private Debt is not a lack of capital but a lack of commercial awareness by borrowers.
