Event Overview

The Institutional and Alternative Lending Conference returns to New York in 2018, bringing together the most senior industry players in direct lending to the US mid-market. 


Direct lending continues to be big business for North America’s leading alternative asset managers and private equity firms. According to Preqin, the asset class soared in size from USD 33Bn in 2008 to USD 100Bn in 2016. 200 new funds have launched since 2009 and last year 58 percent of institutional investors said they would increase allocations to US mid-market lending funds in the next one or two years.

But can the market sustain this growth? Competition is heating up; pricing and liquidity is compressing; leverage and dry power is rising; and covenants are receding. In a world of rising interest rates, equity market uncertainty, and the ever-pervasive ‘Trump factor’, will direct lending funds remain on top of the private debt universe? Will the growth in nonsponsored transactions lead to a decline in credit quality as we reach the end of the credit cycle? Are LPs’ priorities going to change in this new environment? 

As the only conference dedicated exclusively to the US direct lending asset-class, this definitive gathering brings together LPs and GPs in equal measure, giving you unparalleled networking opportunities and access to first class content and thought-leadership.
