Blending Public & Private Credit for Enhanced Yield
Michael R. Smith, Managing Director, Muzinich & Co.
Private credit has increased dramatically in popularity amongst insurers and other institutional investors as yields within the public markets have declined. Equally, the narrative around why private credit is here to stay remains compelling: Banks have retreated from lending and private credit has filled the much needed void. But what about liquidity? Is there a way to blend public and private credit to allow insurers the benefit from Public Credit liquidity and the yield enhancement of Private Credit? How would that look and what could yield expectations be?
