Uncover underwriting risks comprehensively and quickly

Private credit funds often have to respond to the demands of a fast-moving pipeline and a shorter turnaround time in comparison to their private equity counterparts.

Credit funds’ key focus areas during prospect evaluation tend to revolve around the quality of corporate governance, business ethics and integrity of the management and the directors. After the deal, the focus shifts to monitoring their portfolio effectively by keeping an eye on early warning signs at the individual company level and on the overall quality of the portfolio.
