Private Debt Market Growth Could Change Investment Landscape in Singapore


Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2021 -- Private debt has been a solid part of the investing landscape in the US and Europe for many years. However, it's not so well embedded in Asia Pacific where it's an asset class that is still relatively under-invested in. In recent years that has been starting to shift with around a 15% growth rate in private debt AUM per year since 2014. This is a trend that has been building for some time and one that was already forecast to continue, even before the pandemic exacerbated the funding gap in the region. As the private debt market is currently in a state of early expansion - especially compared to the US and Europe - there are some key differences, including the fact that it's currently still a fairly fragmented market and there is less competition. Given the early stages of growth, and the potential that private debt has in Asia Pacific, the next few years could see significant expansion and growth.
