At the start of 2020, credit managers were well positioned and eager to launch new investment strategies and chase higher returns in a low-interest environment. Then the market was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis.

Asset management partners Amanda Persaud (New York), Katie Waite (Boston) and Laurel FitzPatrick (New York) recently joined Lindsay Burton, founder of the Kayo conference series, for a webinar titled “Challenges and Opportunities in Post-COVID-19 Credit Fund Platforms 2020.” The participants discussed how credit managers’ attitudes shifted post-market disruption, and examined the outlook for 2021.

The webinar also addressed a new credit funds report, released by Ropes & Gray in November 2020, that provides insight into how credit fund managers are navigating the economic upheaval and uncertain market conditions brought about by COVID-19. The report, based on research conducted by Ropes & Gray and Debtwire, analyzes the responses of 100 senior-level executives at U.S.- and U.K.-based credit funds.
