PORTFOLIO MANAGER WEBINARS
"MEET THE MANAGER" SERIES
As global investment advisors, we work with a variety of managers in our portfolio construction process. Therefore, we are excited to produce our "Meet the Manager" webinar series, with the goal of introducing you to the various portfolio managers and funds we partner with.
The fourth webinar in the series took place on Wednesday, May 19 at 4pm CT and introduced the experts at MSD Partners (SEC registered investment adviser that was formed from Michael Dell, his family, and affiliated Foundation assets), discussing the current environment of private credit and the interesting opportunities in this unusual environment.
The current environment of low interest rates requires innovative and creative solutions for fixed income portfolios. Private credit, often overlooked due to its complexity and lack of liquidity, actually offers the potential of very favorable investments with high carry and solid lender protections. The aftermath of the financial crisis has led to the strengthening of banking supervision and the international push for higher capital requirements for banks. Basel regulations and other capital regulatory frameworks forced many banks to reconsider their operations and disengage from various non-core lending business lines. Middle market lending was one of the victims, and as banks decreased their participation in the space, multiple private credit institutions jumped into the new market opportunity.
MSD Partners was formed in 2009 to structure investment vehicles for institutional partners and has devoted a lot of resources to establish a specialized private credit platform. With over $5B in assets under management in their credit business, MSD brings to the table a very unique platform with distinguished professionals, high alignment of interest, an unparalleled network of partners, and the reputation to operate quickly and be nimble in every transaction.
In this webcast, we discussed MSD’s latest private credit opportunistic fund, their road to success, and their plans to continue operating as renowned players in the space.
