Revolution Asset Management: Is private debt ready for recession?

January 13, 2023

Uncertainty weighed heavily on markets and generated extreme volatility across asset classes in 2022. Now with market headwinds shifting from soaring inflation and rising interest rates to recession fears, investors need to rethink their allocations as we enter unchartered territory.

With the challenging economic period ahead, this whitepaper explores the impacts of inflation, rising interest rates and widening credit spreads on the Australian and New Zealand private debt market. We discuss the specific characteristics of leveraged buyout loans, real estate debt and asset-backed securities - the sub-sectors of private debt that have demonstrated the ability to withstand multiple market cycles.

It is more important than ever to understand what's under the hood of a private debt allocation as the period ahead will see huge dispersion of performance of private debt funds, depending on the focus of the respective strategies.
