Fundraising in distressed debt, a major private debt strategy, has been relatively volatile over the past decade. Nevertheless, aggregate capital raised in 2021 rose to $31.7bn, compared with $14.8bn in 2011. The peak of 2020, in which fundraising hit $66.2bn, was boosted by the Oaktree Opportunities Fund XI closing at $15.9bn, making it the largest private debt fund worldwide.
