Whether buying structured credit, investing in loan funds or setting up direct lending funds, today, private credit constitutes an important stream within the ocean of global finance

Challenges of private credit

However, this key segment of the investment management industry, also presents a range of challenges. Private credit remains a relatively illiquid physical loan investment. Fund managers require specialised systems and operational knowledge that support different credit strategies and instruments.

In this young and growing industry, the operational infrastructure is still maturing. This is particularly the case for private credit managers’ loan administration capabilities.

Our research on the loan administration function

BNP Paribas, an established partner to some of the world’s leading private credit funds, and the Alternative Credit Council, the global representative of the private credit industry, invited clients and members to share their views on the challenges they face when administering loans.

We also explored the operational infrastructure required to support this function.

We are delighted to share the results of the survey with you, and we hope that the findings will inform you as you strive to implement the optimal operational model for your private credit fund.
