PDI Picks – 5/23/2022

A subdued start to the year for capital raising


The boom in senior debt fundraising subsided somewhat in the first quarter of the year, while North America remained the dominant region.

Fundraising in Q1 2022 continued the very gradual downward trend of the past six years, according to Private Debt Investor data. However, given that additional funds will likely be discovered and added to the total during the rest of the year, fundraising may well sit a little higher come the Q2 report.
