Volume in the first half of 2022 for private loans sized at $1 billion or more has reached $30.8 billion, a level that dwarfs the $9.5 billion recorded in the same period last year, according to Direct Lending Deals.

On a total basis, overall jumbo volume stands at $86.5 billion, a 55% increase from $55.7 billion at the end of 2021, according to DLD.

A pair of late June deals propelled volume higher this month: Zendesk, which took the top slot for biggest private loan ever, and Unified Women’s Healthcare.
