Private debt fundraising dips in H1 but trend still strong, says Preqin

International investors’ interest in distressed debt has overtaken that of mezzanine — the previous favourite, according to the latest report from alternatives data firm Preqin. Overall, private debt fundraising levels fell back in the first half of this year, but the asset type is still seen reaching three-quarters of a trillion dollars in next 1-2 years.

According to the latest report on private debt assets from alternatives data firm Preqin, private debt funds secured USD 44 billion (EUR 37.9 billion) of new capital in the first half of 2018, trailing behind the US 49 billion secured in the first six months of 2017.
