background

Purpose Specialty Lending Trust

A global private debt fund providing truly low correlation and an attractive return by investing in private markets.

What is Private Debt?

Broadly defined as privately negotiated loans, private debt is an emerging asset class where institutions are stepping in to fill the gap where banks will not lend. At US$1-trillion, private debt funds are projected to more than double in the next decade. As a favoured asset class of pension plans and institutions, private debt offers investors a diversifying return stream that’s truly independent of broader markets. Because the private debt market is less liquid than public fixed income and equity markets, there is a greater opportunity for a more favourable risk-adjusted return. Specialty knowledge and expertise is key to maximizing the benefits of this unique category.



Types of Private Debt


Direct Lending

Privately negotiated loans between a company and a lender. Typically, these loans are first-lien senior debt that is secured by assets such as real estate or equipment.

Supply Chain Financing

When a supplier sells its invoices to a lender at a discount after approval from the buyer. This lending allows the buyer to pay later and the supplier to secure its money earlier.

Specialty Finance

Consumer or small business enterprise (“SME”) loans, originated by non-bank lenders

Mezzanine Debt

Debt that is situated between the senior secured bank debt and the equity in an issuer or borrower’s capital structure. Mezzanine debt is typically used to finance leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations and corporate acquisitions.

Distressed Debt

Debt of companies or government entities that are experiencing financial or operational distress, default, or are under bankruptcy.
