Asia Private Debt Deal Activity Falters
While the private debt industry has seen rapid growth in North America and Europe, the industry in Asia has faltered, and private debt deal activity in the region has been mercurial. In 2013, there were 21 deals made in the region, but just 14 the year after. 2015 saw the highest number of private debt deals announced in the region of any year, with a total of 27 deals. It doesn’t look like 2018 will match previous levels, as there have been just eight private debt deals made into Asia as of the end of August.
