DISCOVER HOW DISTRESSED DEBT FUNDS ARE CAPITALISING ON TODAY’S UNPRECEDENTED MARKET ENVIRONMENT AND THE OPPORTUNITY FOR INVESTORS
With Distressed Debt managers holding record amounts of dry powder, will current market dislocations at last present them with the opportunity they’ve been waiting a decade for?
Learn how distressed debt funds are capitalising on the current market environment which many argue is right in their sweetspot today.
With a raft of recent new launches, in addition to late-cycle funds which were already in market, how do investors assess whether specialist distressed debt managers offer a better alternative to the many other “dislocation” plays like Opportunistic Private Credit and Special Sits?
IE’s Distressed Debt Virtual Forum provides investors insight into the market mindset. Hear from the senior leaders in the space and meet fellow investors and potential capital partners.
Our virtual forums offer far more than a webinar with lots of opportunity for connection and interaction. Key feature include:
