Private Placement Debt


The unique characteristics of private placement debt help position the asset class to perform well despite the potential for an economic slowdown or recession. Private placement debt is predominantly investment grade, comes with structural protections, and offers the potential for incremental income. Therefore, in addition to providing diversification and an upfront spread premium to public bonds, we believe private placement debt offers downside protection which can be especially valuable in more challenging economic climates.
