Direct and indirect private debt funds to help investors achieve their investment goals while supporting the real economy.
Private debt capabilities sit within Generali Asset Management. With a long track record of managing private debt portfolios for Generali Group, their private debt strategies aim to help investors achieve their investment goals while contributing to the real economy.
We are at the threshold of a new era for investment opportunities in private debt. Current unfavourable macroeconomic conditions, the continued deterioration of the banking sector, and the trend towards increased regulation should continue to favour private debt as an attractive credit source of choice, especially for SMEs that may suffer the most from these circumstances.
