Below are the highlights of the webinar:

  • Private debt accounts for $1.5 trillion of assets and has doubled in size over the past five years, excluding high yield and leveraged loan sectors.

  • L Catterton, with origins in private equity and a focus on the consumer sector, manages around $34 billion AUM and has a unique partnership with LVMH and Groupe Arnault.

  • L Catterton identifies wellness and the humanization of pets as compelling consumer trends, with investments in the pet sector for over a decade.

  • Private debt strategies, originated outside traditional banking systems, offer benefits like customization and speedy execution, filling the void left by post-financial crisis banking consolidation.

  • Direct lending involves senior secured debt with yields in the mid to high teens. Other strategies include junior debt, distressed debt, mezzanine, secondary debt, and preferred equity.

  • Private debt caters to diverse investment needs through new products, emphasizing the importance of checking managers' experience across various market environments.

  • Anticipated market growth is driven by the need to refinance a substantial amount of debt over the next three to five years and the capital required for new leveraged buyouts.
