2020 tested essentially every asset class. Massive injections of liquidity helped some economic sectors survive the storm, but others remain challenged. Optimism about vaccine roll outs is growing but the potential longer-term impact of pandemic policy responses highlight the need for careful investor analysis of risks and opportunities going forward. Larry Zimmerman, Managing Director, Head of Private Debt Origination at Benefit Street Partners and Mathieu Goulet, Portfolio Manager, Private Equity, Desjardins will review how private credit markets navigated the unprecedented Covid-19 crisis and discuss key trends and developments investors in the asset class should be aware of for 2021 and beyond as economies reopen.
