Alternative Investment

[Webinar] Private Debt as a New Investment Class

New Seminar


Private debt is one of the largest alternative asset classes globally but is still at an early stage of development in Asia. This asset class offers an attractive risk/return profile and diversification versus public fixed income. It becomes topical given its inflation hedge characteristics and continued growth due to stricter lending regulations for banks.


This webinar will help participants to better understand the background, characteristics, categories, risks and opportunity of private debt.


1. Background to private debt as alternative asset class
2. Market dynamics
3. Product characteristics
4. Opportunity for borrowers and investors
5. Risk/return profile

Who should attend

The webinar is primarily targeted at asset managers, private bankers, insurance and family office practitioners, regulators, as well as high net worth investors.
