Private Credit: An unmissable opportunity in India

In a nutshell

Corporates need alternative capital channels to meet their growing financing requirements and development of a vibrant and inclusive bond market remains crucial.

Private Credit is a large market, both globally as well as in India. Internationally, this market has tripled over the last decade and continues to exhibit promise. Investments in private credit opportunities yield significantly higher returns, typically ranging between 10%-15% as compared to FDs and Debt MFs that offer 6%-8% return. The best vintage for private credit is in real estate where there is a huge credit demand but limited fund availability. The underlying for most private credit opportunities is a combination of cash flows plus security over assets.
