TORONTO – Ninepoint Partners LP (“Ninepoint”), one of Canada’s leading alternative investment management firms, today released a new white paper that analyzes the factors that we believe are setting the stage for the continued growth of the private debt asset class across the globe. The report titled “Private Debt in 2023: Assessing the Current State of the Private Debt Market in Canada and Across the Globe” examines the unique dynamics influencing private debt investing and allocation trends both within the Canadian market and across the globe.
“Through this recent period of banking turmoil, Canadian markets have experienced overall tightening. However, the degree of tightening has not been as severe as in the U.S., owing largely to the absence of regional banks in Canada. On the private debt front, the opportunity to diversify a portfolio with strong risk-adjusted returns continues to drive growth from sophisticated investors focused on portfolio construction and a longer-term view,” said Ramesh Kashyap, Managing Director & Head of the Alternative Investment Group at Ninepoint.
Key takeaways the white paper highlights on the state of the Canadian private debt market include:
While private debt funds are intended for high-net-worth investors because they offer more limited transparency and liquidity than public funds, the white paper also discusses some of the historic barriers to private debt adoption in the market that have arguably affected the quality of diversification of many sophisticated Canadian investors’ portfolios.
