We Don't Time Cycles, We Manage Cycles

  • MV Credit has been investing in private debt in the same way for 20 years without never trying to play a cycle. In parallel private debt has gained traction in investors’ allocation.
  • MV Credit gained experience and built strong sponsor relationships during the GFC unlike some of its competitors created after 2008 and experiencing today their first downturn. Direct lenders and private debt firms have emerged as banks retrenched from the senior debt market.
  • Investing in higher-yielding distressed debt at the right time is not easy, resulting in uneven performance among managers. ESG-conscious LPs may be left conflicted with distressed debt. 
  • Private debt suits long-term investors with patient capital. LPs expects private debt firms to provide consistent returns throughout multiple cycles. MV Credit does not time cycles but seeks to build portfolios that are resilient through the cycles.
