Direct Lending Market Panel: Will Things Remain White Hot?

  • Webinar

Shearman & Sterling was pleased to sponsor Refinitiv LPC’s Fall 2021 Loans Virtual Conference.

Shearman & Sterling Finance partners Gus Atiyah, Michael Chernick and Tomasz Kulawik as well as panelists Scott Cullerton from KKR, Mark du Four from Crescent Capital and Neha Shah from Houlihan Lokey, hosted a panel discussion titled, “Will Things Remain White Hot? The Post(?) Pandemic Direct Lending Market” on September 15, 2021.

Topics discussed included:

  • Will the growth in ever-larger unitranche deals challenge the dominance of the broadly syndicated market for larger financings?
  • Is there such a thing as too much capital chasing financing opportunities?
  • Are we in the beginning, middle or end of a cycle?
  • What lies ahead? Identifying unintended consequences and potential pandemic-related curve balls.
