Uniting the alternative credit universe to enable senior executives to boost their insights and build their network
The Alt Credit US Summit 2020 is a one-day event bringing together the entire alternative credit universe in one room – liquid credit, direct lending and CLO markets.
Led and created by the industry and chaired by experienced senior editors, this event brings together front and back office to talk about credit markets, investor trends, CLOs, direct lending and more.
The agenda has been tailored to fit all needs with streamed sessions drilling down into different areas of the sector with a deliberate focus on specific areas of alternative credit.
As well as more than five hours of educational content, delegates will enjoy a host of networking time across lunches and coffee breaks, as well as a drinks reception and – for those attending – an awards ceremony in the evening.

Alt Credit US Summit Feb 2020: Key Takeaways
1. COVENANTS ARE DEAD, LONG LIVE ESG
Sabrina Fox from the European Leveraged Finance Association posited that as the erosion of covenants continues ESG factors could become the new covenant protection and hold managers to account.
2. THE CURRENT CYCLE HAS TO END, EVENTUALLY
While the above statement is true by definition, people have been calling for the thus far non-existent downturn for years. A straw poll put to attendees was split as to expected timing, but 67% expected it to come in 2022 or beyond.
3. TRANSPARENCY AND TECHNOLOGY TO BECOME MORE PROMINENT
Institutional investors, in particular, are limited by compliance measures that some alternative credit strategies do not currently meet.
4. THE TRAIL HAS BEEN BLAZED
Alternative credit is no longer a new, opaque asset class. The early adopters in the industry have blazed a trail and investors now accept these strategies as tried and tested.
5. THE TAO OF CREDIT
A number of panellists talked about how moving into a less populated, more niche investment space often offered superior returns to traditional credit investments.
