The fundraising fightback
Following the peak of 2017, private debt capital raising had suffered something of a lean time. Last year changed all that.
Last year was the year private debt fundraising came back with a bang. After capital raising hit a low of $183.9 billion in 2020 amid the initial outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic, 2021 saw almost $250 billion raised according to Private Debt Investor’s latest data (see chart above).
