Private Credit Series: Navigating Today's Private Credit

Oct 1st 2020 - Apr 13th 2021
12:00 - 1:30 PM Eastern Time
Virtual Program


Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020, Institutional Investor will bring together senior investment decision-makers from the LP community and a select group of senior representatives from the GP community in a monthly virtual series to discuss opportunities, risks, and allocations across the gamut of private credit strategies. Join your LP peers from the larger pension funds, endowments & foundations, insurance companies, charitable trusts, and health funds to share views on Navigating Today’s Private Credit. How does your private credit program compare with that of your peer group? What are others in your seat doing that may be worth a look?

Each of these virtual sessions will run from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM Eastern on the Zoom platform and include a fireside chat with a GP; private breakout discussion groups; and an Allocator panel discussion.
